Common Threads

Common Threads has been developing playwork practice through training, publications and consultancy for over twenty years.  Operating as a social enterprise (‘not for profit’), any profits go back into developing new programmes and resources. Over the last 20 years we have:

  • Trained, employed and supported 80 playwork trainers to deliver our 101 unique training courses.
  • Developed 30 new resources to develop playwork practice, supporting new authors to the tune of nearly £25,000.
  • Directly donated around £6,000 to support charities working to support children’s right to play in developing countries.
  • Developed an extensive database of playwork practitioners and supporters from 42 countries around the world…and counting!
