Play Torbay is an incorporated charity launching on 7 October 2010. Our aim is to improve the quality and quantity of play provision for children and young people living in Torbay and raise awareness about the importance of play in children’s lives.

Our core activities are:

Adventure Play in the Bay
Young Play Torbay: FUNK
Adventure Playgrounds – in Brixham: Indigos, Torquay: Fort Apache and Paignton: Wild Fox

We raise funds to provide free activities and transport for children across the Bay particularly for those who may not be able to access opportunities otherwise; we provide free training to our staff and volunteers.
