Welcome to Big Fun! Our aim is to provide a range of fun, engaging and educational activities for children and families in the local community.
What can you expect from Big Fun? We offer a variety of activities, including early years workshops, soft play sessions, participatory activities for parent and child, community networking for lone parents, educational games and activities for young people. Our focus is on improving access to health and wellbeing for children, developing networks to tackle isolation with lone parents and increasing access to outdoor community spaces.
Why do we do what we do? The community we represent includes many in Scotland’s 10% most deprived areas (SMID) and face many social and economic challenges. We found through community consultation that there is little available in terms of early years activities and financial aspects are a huge barrier for engagement. We want to provide an affordable and accessible option for families in the area to come together and have fun.
When can you join us? Our events will take place across the school summer holidays. Hour-long soft play sessions will be held throughout the program. We will also have early years sessions held by local heroes such as Giggle N’ Grow, Bookbug and Move Dance Grow.
Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our attendees have to say:
“Soft play was a godsend for the lockdown babies. It was the only time we got to interact with other wee people. I could cry thinking about it. Thanks so much. Staff were all amazing and very helpful.”
“The spirit of welcome and community across all the events was incredible. It is a rare and joyful experience to be at an event and have such a range of ages, backgrounds, identities and for all to appear to welcome and comfortable. Congrats to all involved :)”
Join us at Big Fun and be a part of a vibrant, engaging and inclusive community.
