Activities for young people

The Children, Young People and Families services are run by a small team based at Tulse Hill Adventure Playground. We provide open access free play and youth activities five days a week at the playground along with in-school coaching to 10-18 year olds two days a week. Adventure Play is offered alongside help with homework, sports activities, cooking, arts and craft activities, bike maintenance and free play. We are also open during school holidays for daytime open access play sessions.


Please note the Adventure Playground is currently closed for repairs. In the meantime, our Children, Young People and Families team are running free trips and activities for young people. If you are interested in booking these for your child, please contact, or call                     020 8671 3132.

Due to the closure of the APG we are not currently running English Stay & Play sessions.
