Happy Days play project was set up three years ago, and aims to provide children and families living in temporary accommodation a range of play activities, which are both fun and developmental. We work with children and parents together with the aim of families taking part in positive play activities together. Our play workers engage families in play activities that can be recreated easily within the temporary accommodation setting, a more permanent home or the local area, and we try to support families to access other valuable local services, such as children’s centres to maximise the support they can receive during their time of re-settlement.
