About us

About our charity


World at Play is about enriching lives through sport and play.

The charity is based in Wales. We train volunteers in sports and play leadership. The volunteers then travel as a team of nine on a ten-week expedition across Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Bulgaria, working with children in marginalised communities and refugee camps

Our programme is designed to have a long term and sustainable impact on our volunteers, on the children who take part, and on the partner organisations we work with.

We are now accepting applications for the 2018 expedition, managed by Wendy and Sarah. We hope you will consider joining us, you can find out more here.

Wendy worked internationally for many years as a producer of documentary programmes.  She has also managed projects in Malawi and Fiji for an international development charity. 
Sarah is a youth worker and has an MA in working for children and young people.  She was a volunteer on the 2014 expedition and team leader on the 2016 expedition.
