Ian McCarthy has worked on adventure playgrounds in Bristol and East London before coming to IPA. He is a dancer and is a dab hand at fixing our wooden play structures.
Job Title: Deputy Playworker
Location: Crumbles Castle
Qualifications: I trained as a contemporary dancer and try to bring the idea that anybody can do whatever they want regardless of what other people think into my work.
What do you love about working at IPA?
I enjoy working for IPA because as an organisation it provides play for children right across the borough.
What is your favourite childhood play memory?
My favourite play memory is playing on the roofs of the garages behind my house as a kid, it was a secret world only we knew how to get to and could run around above the cars and people.
