PlaceScape works closely with communities to support the management and implementation of programs and projects that benefit local people. Our work may include community consultation, support in accessing funding, project planning, using best practice models to inform the design process, advice on gardening, maintenance and sustainability, and more. PlaceScape delivers services through a holistic project management approach.

  • Type:Association,Non Government,Local Focus



The idea of PlaceScape was born in 2008 during conversations between directors May Carter and Sabrina Hahn. Both were concerned about areas of Perth where vast tracts of bushland and other green spaces seemed to be disappearing under a sea of roofs and concrete streetscapes.

May had been working on a research project exploring links between resident perceptions of urban green spaces and self-reported health. Substantially better general health, quality of life and community connection was reported by people living near parklands that were valued, useable and provided a diverse range of settings and opportunities for physical activity, relaxation and social interaction.

Sabrina is widely known for her commitment to WA gardening and was concerned about the loss of trees and fewer gardens – in both private and public spaces – and about design of new parks being unsuitable for the WA climate and lifestyle.

May and Sabrina were aware that many people wanted to do something about growing greener places to live, work and play but often don’t know how to go about it. They used their extensive network of contacts to bring together likeminded people to co-direct this venture.

And that’s how PlaceScape was created – from the passion of a small group of people who want to save the world one tree at a time!

With 43 people diagnosed with breast cancer each day, the McGrath Foundation is encouraging communities across the country to follow the lead of these famous sports stars by purchasing their team socks as well as hosting a fundraising event to help support families experiencing breast cancer.

"Last year we had over 200 Pull On Your Socks events across Australia and this year we anticipate even more codes stepping up and getting their clubs involved within local communities,” said Tracy.

Save the Children Playschemes

Save the Children provides many programs to help young people all around Western Australia. Playschemes is one of these all important programs.

  • Type:Non Government
  • Charity:Child Welfare,Education & Training,Local Community,Sport & Recreation,Youth Welfare


  • Education:Kindergarden,Pre-School,Primary School



Playschemes are the largest of our Early Childhood Care and Development programs in Australia and have been running for more than 30 years. They provide children with opportunities to learn, grow and develop through safe and supported play.

Why early childhood learning is important

A child’s development between birth and the age of five is critical to their health, learning and success later in life. Play is crucial - it provides the basis for cognitive, physical, social and emotional learning and development. Unfortunately, many socially and economically disadvantaged families in Australia aren’t able to provide their children with opportunities for play-based learning.

Save the Children’s Playscheme program

Playschemes provide regular early learning activities and parenting support for vulnerable families and children under the six years old. Run by trained Early Childhood staff, the free playgroups help young children learn to play, socialise, establish routine and prepare for school.

In some communities we run Intensive Supported Playschemes, which may include home visits and additional support. During the weekly sessions, Family Support Workers also provide parents with advice and links to community services and other families in a non-threatening environment.

Each session is carefully designed to ensure its relevance and appropriateness for children from a range of backgrounds, such as culturally and linguistically diverse, newly arrived and refugee families and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Where we run our Playschemes

We have Playschemes in major cities, rural and remote communities in approximately 100 locations across Australia. This includes remote Aboriginal communities such as Mornington Island and Doomadgee in Northern Queensland, Kununurra in Western Australia, Wilcannia inNew South Wales, the Far West Coast of South Australia and Wadeye in the Northern Territory.

How we know our Playschemes help children develop

Based on national and international best practices for early childhood learning, our Playscheme program supports thousands of vulnerable children and their families each year. In the last two years alone, the program has grown to assist children and families in an additional 20 locations across Australia. In 2013 alone, more than 4,000 children attended our Playschemes.

Who makes our Playschemes possible

We are grateful to the Australian Government, Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services and Corrections, the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, the Telethon Foundation and to generous Australians who fund our Playschemes.
