PEEK’s Play Programme is driven by local needs and operates all year round and in all weathers allowing for a consistent service provision. Our Play Rangers recognise that children and young people are the experts in play, so maintaining a child centred perspective in their approach to play provision is paramount.
Outdoor Street Play
PEEK Play Rangers provide access to free play opportunities in playgrounds, streets and open spaces in disadvantaged communities in Glasgow, our Play Rangers encourage children and young people to reclaim spaces and places for play. The play sessions operate on an open access principle which means children and young people are free to come and go as they please.

Play Provision in Schools
PEEK work in partnership with several primary and secondary schools in Glasgow to provide high quality play opportunities in the school environment. We do this in various capacities; Play Training, Breakfast Club Support, Curricular Support, Lunchtime Play opportunities, After-School Play sessions and School Holiday Play provision.
As part of the Food, Families, Futures project managed by Children in Scotland, in partnership with Brakes, People’s Postcode Lottery and Business in the Community Scotland, activity and wellbeing clubs were run for children and families in two primary schools in Glasgow over the summer of 2016. PEEK worked in partnership with Thriving Places to deliver this project in Dalmarnock Primary – Dalmarnock Summer Club
