Parent Action for Safe Play (PASP) is a small local organisation which has worked hard over the last 15 years to develop and improve play, youth and sport services for local children and young people. We are run by the local community for the local community.
We have been successful in establishing a state-of-the-art play area and we provide street play services in several local neighbourhoods, bringing play workers and play equipment to the children. We also have an indoor Children and Youth Development Centre and we run a number of activities and groups.
Children and young people love what they can do with PASP, they feel safe, they can explore and have fun and it helps them to develop and grow.
