More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

Bath Area Play Project (BAPP) provides play opportunities at a variety of locations in Bath, for children and young people. Play sessions run during the school holidays and are open access (children are free to come and go). In the summer we run SOFA for 12 - 16 year olds - an activity programme with transport. Bath Area Play Project provides a closed access playscheme for disabled children and young people.
We also run youth provision, a pre-school, toy library and family play support.

BAPP also runs the Turtle Toy Library with resources for children aged 0-16.

The Community Play Rangers encourage children to enjoy their childhood and lead active healthy lifestyles through free and active play in all weathers and encourage them to be involved in their communities. For dates please see the website.
