The Playbus is a mobile play space which can come to the children and families who cannot travel to play facilities. It is a free, safe, friendly and nurturing environment where they can overcome some of the difficulties limiting their lives. Sessions are run by dedicated, professional fully-qualified people and the bus provides toys, books advice and regular contact for families with little or no long-term support.
