Thurrock Play Network

About Thurrock Play Network

Thurrock Play Network (TPN) we are a small non-profit charity that provides advice, support and resources for play and recreation in the community. We give advice and support to individuals, voluntary groups and organisations ranging from parents, grandparents, child-minders, uniformed groups, faith groups, pre-schools, day nurseries, schools, colleges, special needs groups, Day Centre’s, allotment groups and sheltered accommodation complexes.

We source funding to develop projects, while providing access to a wide range of low cost resources for play and recreation via The Pyramid Resource Centre.

Thurrock Play Network works with the community by giving placements to social care clients who use the centre with their carers (e.g. Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions (TLS), Beacon Hill Post 16 and Treetops School). We are able to provide a safe, secure and friendly environment for the clients to gain confidence to give them an insight into a working environment

The Pyramid Resource Centre is an Aladdin’s Cave of resources for parents and carers of children and young people. With a scrap store, handicraft materials and a toy library all under one roof.

Or project improves the quality of care, activities and education for children and young people in Thurrock. We have an extensive range of low cost resources available for sale or hire at The Pyramid Resource Centre that enables the provision of affordable, innovative high quality resources.


The Pyramid Resource Centre

At The Pyramid Resource Centre’s Scrapstore we actively encourage the reuse of everyday items that would normally end up in landfill. Through our work we are able to help local communities take pride and responsibility for their local areas by developing skills that will create a cleaner greener environment. Keeping children and young people actively engaged in meaningful, constructive activities is the first step to preventing anti-social behaviour and a reduction in petty crime.

Throughout the year and particularly during the holiday periods community groups are able to innovatively engage with families and young people by providing a range of activities using low cost resources we provide via the Pyramid Resource Centre. We regularly hold free open access events for the community such as craft activities days, National Play Day Event, coffee mornings to raise funds. This gives our followers and supporters a chance to come together and share ideas and experiences.
