Established in June 2018 The Valley Project provides a safe outdoor space for children and young people to meet, play and develop socially, emotionally and physically.
We aim to tackle inequalities and social isolation faced by children and young people growing up in Holme Wood, Bradford. We empower children and young people within the community to develop resilience and emotional competency, learn new skills and make informed choices, instilling aspirational values and increasing life opportunities.
What We Do
We run regular open access sessions where children use hand tools to build dens, treehouses, climbing & jumping towers and generally let their imaginations run wild. We source a wide range of recycled 'loose parts' from local businesses, helping to keep resource costs down and providing the children with a wide range of building materials to shape their play space to suit their needs. We also provide hearty campfire cooked meals and snacks every day.
