Positive Play Support

We offer support for vulnerable children and young people using play to raise self-esteem and confidence, to help those young people reach their full potential in life.

What do we offer?

We offer presentations, training, and ongoing mentoring and support to schools. Our service helps school staff to deliver high quality structured support sessions for children and young people. Our service is free for maintained schools; we make a small charge for academies.

Why choose us?

Positive Play Support allows young people a space to express and communicate feelings and difficulties in their lives, through a variety of media in constructive rather than aggressive ways, and in a safe nonthreatening environment. It provides activities that look at the strengths of children and young people and values what they do and makes them special. It is non-authoritarian, safe and unconditional.

It provides the opportunity for children and young people to experience some of the early experiences that might have been missed but which are necessary for formal education and social interaction.

Young people with emotional and behavioural problems often have a negative view of school which can persist through their school career, a positive experience can change that perception.
