About Awesome CIC

Awesome is an employee-led social enterprise founded to promote Adventure Play in Islington. We work alongside communities providing a fun, safe and challenging environment where Children and Young People can positively develop through play, in their own way, for their own reasons.

We believe passionately that play services that let children explore and experiment should remain free at the point of access. We are a not for profit investing all the income we receive into our playgrounds routinely used by some of the borough’s most vulnerable children and families.


We run free play activities open to all children, young people and families in Islington from 6 award-winning state of the art Adventure Playgrounds, bringing people together through play. Our Adventure Playgrounds function as safe, welcoming spaces operating with a strong sense of local ownership and social purpose.

Co-operative owned and run by trained play and youth work staff who are passionate about what they do. The activities we run support the development of new innovative services for children living, playing and going to school in Islington. We work with public sector commissioners, schools, the community and local partners to support children’s physical and emotional wellbeing and development.
