Lets All Play is a ‘short Breaks’ service for disabled children and their families. Working in partnership with WECIL, NAS, Time2Share and Khaas  to support children with additional needs to access local play opportunities. We support  the E.D.C.M campaign , we believe that disabled children and their families have the right to the services and support they need to lead ordinary lives and to expect .

For More information on the full range of breaks for disabled children can be found on “Bristol’s local offer (link opens in a new window).

Our experienced playworkers have worked with a wide range of children in many different settings. We have a friendly, adaptable approach to ensure everyone can access the play opportunities they want. Playbus can work with you and your child to offer a range of free, inclusive play activities at Bristol’s adventure playgrounds.

Let’s All Play sessions will offer a range of activities including cooking, arts and crafts and freely chosen play activities and of course, the challenge of exploring the adventure playgrounds themselves.
