Parent Action for Safe Play’s activities are driven by the following mission statement:
“Parent Action for Safe Play aims to improve the quality of life in Coatbridge by delivering an integrated, inclusive and accessible range of play, sports, leisure, and community based services.”
Parent Action for Safe Play (PASP) is a small local organisation which has worked hard over the last 15 years to develop and improve play, youth and sport services for local children and young people. We are run by the local community for the local community.
We have been successful in establishing a state-of-the-art play area and we provide street play services in several local neighbourhoods, bringing play workers and play equipment to the children. We also have an indoor Children and Youth Development Centre and we run a number of activities and groups.
Children and young people love what they can do with PASP, they feel safe, they can explore and have fun and it helps them to develop and grow.
Brief description of the organisation
Parent Action for Safe Play (PASP) is a community-led organisation that has transformed an area of Kirkshaws, Coatbridge into a haven where children and young people know they are always welcome to come, meet their friends and enjoy space where their needs come first.
Providing activities for children and young people helps them develop and learn, preparing them for life. PASP has a strong reputation for developing play in disadvantaged areas built over fifteen years. We have a purpose built playground open all year round, with solar-powered floodlighting. We have an indoor Children and Youth Development Centre with a wide ranging programme of opportunities for children from 5 to 16 years, including drama, dance, music, crafts, gardening and sports, with over 300 children and young people attending weekly.
