Get involved

There are many ways in which you can get involved with the wide variety of projects at MKPA and two of the main areas are:

  • Volunteering
  • Donating Scrap

Volunteering

As a charity, MKPA values the help and support of volunteers. We can offer a variety of roles for a volunteer. Currently we have volunteers helping us in the Resource Unit, sorting and bagging materials, restocking the shelves, helping with picking up resources from donor companies. We have volunteers supporting our Front Office staff, administering memberships, training bookings or helping our accounting staff. We have a number of volunteers supporting our Play Team, helping deliver play sessions.

Fundraising for MKPA

If you are an individual or school looking to support a local charity – why not choose MKPA?! We actively champion the right of children to play freely and imaginatively, supporting their social, imaginative, physical, emotional and communicational development by providing direct play opportunities. All support we receive makes a real difference to children in the local community and we would love to hear your fundraising ideas.
