About us

GAIN was set up in 1998 by a group of mothers who had no local playpark for their children. We worked hard to engage with the community and raise funds to convert a wasteground into a fantastic play space for everyone to use.


Our ideas have developed out of a desire to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Since its inception, we have worked hard to involve users of the facility but new ideas are now required for the refurbishment of the facility.


Our management team relies exclusively on volunteer help. Anyone with suggestions or who is willing to help our organisation in any way remember, a little often goes a long way. 


We're always happy to welcome new volunteers who would like to dedicate some of their time or skills to charity. If you'd like to lend a hand, please don't hesitate to contact us, new members are always welcome.

GAIN projects are run by a very small team of dedicated part-time workers.
