Play related funding information including Local, National, School and Planning & Project Guidance can be found on the FSPA’s leading play body’s (the Association of Play Industries) website within the funding section
It’s great to be part of an organisation that campaigns for investment in children’s play facilities and which raises the standards of the entire industry.
Having the support of the FSPA behind us is tremendously beneficial and greatly enhances the offering to our membership.
I have been a member of SPE for many years now and every member shows a 100% commitment to promote participation in sport and play in the UK.
The FSPA provides a cohesive voice far louder than any member company or association could achieve alone. It also creates extremely beneficial networking opportunities.
It’s sometimes difficult to get heard when you stand on your own. But when you're part of a respected body like the FSPA, people listen and things start to happen.
The opportunity to meet with like-minded people across our sector to discuss some of the challenges is always invaluable.
A must for anyone in the industry who wants to develop themselves and their Club.
Working with like-minded people who maintain very high standards is both inspiring and reassuring for my customers.
The benefits in terms of cash savings alone more than outweigh the membership cost. The opportunities to exchange ideas with other operators are an enormous help too.
Working together as a group of companies creates a stronger voice for the play industry, which benefits both suppliers and customers.
