Our Team

The Hackney Playbus team is made up of a group of staff and volunteers who are committed to improving the lives of young children in East London. The members of our team come from diverse backgrounds and have a variety of skills and talents, brought together by a shared belief in the power of play and the importance of community.

Every member of staff has a current DBS certificate and is trained in Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid. Staff and volunteers are trained in early years child development and regularly attend courses to continue their professional development. We love to learn!

If you’re interested in joining our team of sessional early years playworkers, please get in touch here.
