RAF Benevolent Fund: Airplay Project

Airplay is the RAF Benevolent Fund’s £24 million support programme for RAF families.

The charity is providing a huge range of facilities, equipment and activities for toddlers through to teenagers on 28 RAF stations across the UK.

Airplay has three main elements:

• Airplay Parks: brand new multi-use games areas (MUGA) and rejuvenated play parks
• Airplay Youth Support: safe, supervised activities delivered by trained youth workers
• Airplay Childcare Centres: making childcare more accessible and affordable by building childcare centres on or near 27 RAF stations
