Giving children and young people in Camden a better start in life.

We are a grass-roots play charity based in the London Borough of Camden. PACE was originally founded in 2011 by a group of parents with the aim of providing high quality play and childcare services in the area.

Today we offer a wide range of services that improve the health and happiness of children and their families. We work with children and young people aged 2-18, with differing needs and abilities, from all backgrounds.

Our vision:

All children and young people should have a healthy, happy childhood and a resilient, supportive family

Our mission:

To create and sustain high-quality, inclusive and responsive services that improve the wellbeing of children, young people and their families

Our aims:

  1. Ensure all children and young people are able to have positive play and learning experiences in a safe, fun and stimulating environment
  2. Help to improve children and young people’s wellbeing by developing their emotional, educational, physical and social skills and raising their aspirations
  3. Support children, young people and families to be more understanding, accepting and respectful of others and to value differences
  4. Provide early intervention measures to increase the life chances of children, young people and families who are at risk of social exclusion
  5. Provide quality, affordable childcare and holistic family services, giving parents/carers support, respite and opportunities to access work and training
