Can you help keep Firstsite fantastic, fun and free?

The impact of shutting Firstsite has been huge for us and the communities we work with, which is why we are reaching out to you to help us.

Whatever you can give today can help us continue our work, collaborate with more communities and find creative solutions to the world we find in front of us.

Events run during school holidays and are FREE for any family.

Keeping you safe

In response to feedback from our visitors and our team, along with the latest official advice, we have put a number of measures in place to provide a safe and fun experience for everyone:

• Socially distanced tables with table service

• Food serving staff equipped with face shields 

• Surfaces and seating cleaned regularly

• Toilets closely monitored and regularly cleaned

• Socially distanced sports activities with equipment cleaned between sessions

• Hand sanitising stations

• Participants’ details recorded as part of ‘NHS Test and Trace

Keep children active over the school holidays with sports activities outside.
