Welcome to Common Threads

Common Threads develops playwork practice through training, publications and consultancy .  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 across the UK and internationally.
  • Developed 32 new resources to develop playwork practice, supporting new authors to the tune of over £25,000.
  • Directly donated around £6,000 to support charities working to support children’s right to play in developing countries.
