Play Rangers

Free play for children in their community

Too many children Scotland lack the opportunity to play regularly outside in their communities. Inevitably opportunities are reduced further for children in deprived areas.

Play Rangers provide access to free play opportunities in playgrounds, streets and open spaces in the communities throughout Scotland and encourage children to come to free open access sessions.

We want every child in Scotland to have to be able to play freely and safely in their own communities.
