Charity launches survey to assess the potential for Pop-Up Play Shops (PUPS)

The new play charity, Pop-Up Adventure Play has published an on-line survey to help assess the need and potential for Pop-Up Play Shops (PUPS) – playwork projects offering free play sessions to children and their parents from vacant shop-fronts.

The survey is part of a lottery funded study of the possibilities for playwork projects within the “meanwhile space” movement, which aims to make use of vacant commercial premises for “pop-up” businesses or social projects, usually on a temporary basis for nominal rents.

The charity’s founders, Morgan Leichter-Saxby and Suzanna Law have run a number of pop-up play projects, including a successful Pop-Up Play Shop in Cardiff city centre, and now want to support others to adopt the model.

A letter about the project, with a link to the survey, can be found here

The survey will close on 30 November.
