Every child has a right to play! BAPP is a local voluntary organisation and registered charity. We promote and facilitate opportunities for children and young people to play and participate in positive activities. BAPP recognises and promotes the importance of self-directed play in relation to child development and the rights of children and young people.
Bath Area Play Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and embed this into practice. BAPP work hard to include all children and young people into their services. This can include Home Visits, answering questions either on the phone or face to face, establishing how best we can support the child or young person. This can result in good matches for the best service and so we have staff with the right skills.
BAPP have a range of services some of which are inclusive and some of which are targeted but all aimed at reaching and providing a relevant service for different children and young people including disabled children and young people.
- Targeted Holiday Playscheme is specifically for disabled children aged 5 – 19 years and their siblings. Runs in most school holidays from 9am to 3pm
- Inclusive Holiday Playscheme is an inclusive playscheme for disabled and non-disabled children aged 5 – 12 years. Runs in most school holidays from 10am – 3pm
- Community Play Rangers provide an open-access service outside in parks after school and during school holidays for children and families

All of these services strive to meet the unique needs of the children and young people who use these services. We can come to the family home before you start using the service or meet with you so can find out more about what we can do to support and enable the service to be used. We are a flexible and open organisation with approachable, friendly staff who work hard to ensure that children are included and enjoying themselves.
