It's time to play!

Did you know that we have a whole department for Play.

Play Services make sure that everyone between 5 and 12 years of age gets the chance to have fun and makes time for play. 

Play Sessions are lead by specially trained Playworkers and usually last for up to two hours.  During the sessions children have the opportunity to choose what they do and this can be a mix of games, sports, arts & crafts.  The emphasis is always on having fun!  Sessions take place in local communities, indoors and outdoors and are suitable for children of primary school age.
Details of where and when sessions take place are listed on
Further information is available from the Glasgow Life on 0141 287 4833. (Please ask for play services and state which area of the city you live and you will be transferred). Glasgow Life are currently undergoing some office moves at present and further details will be published here when avaialable.
