Award Winning Adventure Playground
SWAPA is a charitable organisation run by a voluntary management committee who work in partnership with the playwork team.
Once a year we have an (AGM) Annual General Meeting where parents and local community members can choose to join the management committee or help out as volunteers.
The playground supports the rights of children to make choices in their play whilst enabling children to explore the natural world around them, to take risks and to challenge themselves.
To provide a free quality play provision all year round, developing community links, bringing the natural world into a rich, varied play environment.
To facilitate stimulating self-directed play opportunities, provide learning occasions for children and young people within a setting that empowers and respects them and their needs.
Provide play and social opportunities
Enjoy and achieve new skills
Promote emotional well-being
Increase self-confidence & self esteem
By diverting users from antisocial behaviour and crime, the playground provides positive activities for young people being at risk. This is the only such play provision for young people in this part of Stoke Newington, Hackney
We all believe that through activities and participation, we can really help integrate our young people. Play is spontaneous and freely chosen. If we can help them to develop their own individual form of expression and build their confidence we believe we can help them become productive, integrated members of society.
We also work in partnership with Hackney Play Association, bilding links with the local Community Police and various other groups and agencies and encourage those who show interest, older users, trainees and volunteers, to develop a possible future career in Playwork/childcare
