We are always busy here at IPA with amazing projects, events and sessions taking place all over the borough. To keep informed about our work look no further. Our aim is to continually create exciting places for children to play and to increase their accessibility to those opportunities. Everything we do is designed with the playing child at the heart and we are super proud of our staff, volunteers and partners who make it all happen.
A reminder that we are looking to recruit two awesome Deputy Playworkers (£19,655 pro-rata) to support children’s play on our adventure playgrounds.
Closing date for applications: 9.00am, Tuesday 28th November 2017
