Licketyspit has a strong track-record of success in collaborating with other organisations.

This has included other third sector organisations like the Scottish Refugee Council and Scottish Adoption, where our expertise in inter-generational, child-led play has added value and had a lasting impact with children and families.

In Picnic & Play, we have collaborated with over 10 libraries, museums, galleries and parks including the Botanics in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, GOMA, City Arts Centre, Lauriston Castle and Glasgow’s Riverside Museum. These collaborations have supported increased engagement with low-income and EAL families, as we bring the familiar, relaxed format of our play sessions to new venues, inviting new and existing families from our Children & Families Network.

We have worked closely with over 15 schools and nurseries with our instrumental work – LicketyLeap, Porridge & Play and more – now part of Storyplay. Our shows have also been hugely popular playing to dozens of whole schools across Scotland.

We also provide Continuing Professional Development training for schools and children’s organisations.

If you are interested in collaborating with Licketyspit, or would like to know more about our tailored projects and community engagement, we’d love to hear from you!
