New Scots Integration Project opens new Porridge & Play Hubs

In Bridgeton, Castlemilk & Cranhill

In 2022, Licketyspit set up three new family play hubs as part of our 2022 New Scots Integration Project, designed to bring children & their families together through the power of Storyplay! With the help of our partners, our Storyplay Champions and the families we work with, we have created vibrant, friendly hubs that giveour children & families a loving and safe community.

The Story so far…

Storyplay Champion training

In autumn 2021, we ran Storyplay Champion training sessions online, for local professionals and families who would help us launch our new hubs.

Porridge & Play Block 1 – February-April

Porridge & Play was all about getting together to share a meal and do Storyplay! We worked with our partners Cranhill Development Trust, Church House and the Indigo Childcare group to deliver this block.

Castlemilk Porridge & Play – The Indigo Childcare Group- Launched in February, then Wednesdays (3:30-5:30pm) March-April

Cranhill Porridge & Play – Cranhill Development Trust- Launched in February, then Thursdays (4-6pm) March-April

Bridgeton Porridge & Play – Church House – Launched in February, then Fridays (4-6pm) March-April

Picnic & Play – May-July

In 2019 we did Picnic & Play with our Porridge & Play groups in the Gorbals, Ruchill and Whiteinch and these ‘trips’ were a real highlight for all of our participants.

We brought this back for Porridge & Play Bridgeton, Cranhill & Castlemilk, going on a great Scottish Adventure around Glasgow and beyond.

Venues included the Science Centre, Balloch Castle Country park, the Riverside Museum, the Huntarian museum, Castlemilk Park, Troon Beach, the Forth & Clyde Canal, the Sensory Hub, the Dream Machine, the Glasgow Women’s Library and the Tall Ship!

we’d like to say a big thanks to all of our partners!

AllScot Playcards – July-August 2022!

Porridge & Play was back in July for more fun games and more yummy food! In these sessions we also worked with you to create some fun new ALLSCOT playcards! At Licketyspit we play the Lickety Playcard games during our sessions. From the Funky Chicken to Flying Balloons these playcards are easy to understand and great for intergenerational family friendly play. In this block we collaborated with YOU to make playcards about the other games you like to play or played as child.

The Storyplay Festival

On Saturday 17th September, we held our first ever Storyplay Festival, to celebrate the project and bring everyone together in Dassie Park (on Glasgow Green) for a day of Storyplay, family art voyages, Lickety Mums multicultural picnic & more!

About the Project

In 2022, Licketyspit was funded by the New Scots Refugee Integration Fund to set up three new Porridge & Play Hubs in Glasgow!

Porridge & Play Hubs – Castlemilk, Cranhill & Bridgeton was delivered in partnership with Storyplay Champion partners, parents/carers and children from Bridgeton, Cranhill and Castlemilk. The children made a film to introduce the new hubs called ‘Welcome to Porridge & Play’ which you can watch on the right!

The project has been designed in consultation with the Licketyspit Children & Families Network and draws on Licketyspit’s highly successful and well-evaluated intergenerational imaginary play project Big Porridge & Play Glasgow.

We chose Castlemilk and the East End for this expansion because of the high numbers of asylum-seeking families living in and around these areas who have joined Licketyspit’s Porridge & Play Online sessions and further, because of the enthusiasm of our local partners to learn about and use Licketyspit’s Storyplay approach.

Storyplay for the Planet

Storyplay Champions

Licketyspit hopes these two new Porridge & Play Hubs will develop into popular and long-lasting cultural assets to support integration, children’s rights and family relationships in the East End and Castlemilk!

We are therefore involving partners and local Storyplay Champion parents, carers and children who already play with Licketyspit, from the very start of the project.

We have already started with Steering Groups to develop the project and bring the Hubs to you in 2022!

Ruby, Rhianne, Andre, Taz and Effie will be at the Porridge & Play Hubs along with our Storyplay Champions…
