Support SWAPA

SWAPA is run by an independent charity dedicated to keeping our Open Access adventure playground FREE. We couldn't do it without the support of people like you.

There are loads of ways you can support our work. Scroll to find out how

Support our crowd funder to rebuild the zip-line

We love our massive wooden play structures, we can paint them, nail things to them and add interesting things to them but wood doesn't last forever. Our much loved zip-line has been out of commission since Summer 2022 and we would *love* to rebuild it. Everyone misses it a lot. Can you help the kids get their zip-line back? Wouldn't it be awesome to have it back up and running before Summer 2023!

Buy us something from our Amazon wish list

Click here to see our Amazon wish list which is filled with every day essentials that we need all the time as well as larger things that would really add something to the play space but we currently can't afford. Items range from £5 to £1000 and we would be really grateful to recieve any of them.

Hire SWAPA for a children's party

Have a lot of fun while supporting our work! The playground is available for hire for children's parties on Sundays- that's right- sole use of the whole site inside and out! Money from party hires directly supports our free open access play sessions. Find out more here

Organise a team building day for you and your colleagues

Looking for a rewarding challenge to get your team out of the office? Spend the day helping us keep the playground safe, exciting and ever changing. Teams leave at the end of the day having made a clear impact for the children who use the site.

Lend us your skills or know how

Are you an electrician, a plumber, a boiler engineer, a locksmith, a carpenter, a builder, a graffiti artist, an accountant, or have any other kind of skill you think might be useful for our little charity and you're happy to donate your time if we need help? We'd love to hear from you.

Volunteer your time to help with site maintenance, cleaning, tidying, or our community events

As you can probably imagine, having this much fun creates a lot of mess and we have a lot of resources that always need tidying and sorting to make sure we know where to find them when we want them. Maybe you're local and you've got some time during the week to help us stay on top of everything. Or maybe you're up for lending us a hand to make sure our 4 community open days per year run as smoothly as they can. This might including preparing and serving food, welcoming people, supporting Playworkers to get activities going and help with clearing up. We'd love to hear from you
