Who we are:
Dream Networks is a not for profit community interest company that exists to enable businesses, communities and educational institutions to collaboratively design and build sustainable play areas in marginalised communities.
We pride ourselves in placing children and collaboration at the heart of the process. The programmes that we offer create lasting networks that continue to serve communities long after the projects are over.
Moreover, they provide children with the agency and tools to design their own play areas, using computer-aided design software.
We connect the pieces in the collaborative network to make children's Dreams of playing a reality!
We believe that everyone needs to play and has a right to play.
We believe that everyone can contribute towards creating a safe and fun place to play.
We believe designing play areas is child's play. Literally!
We believe that technology can be utilised to enrich learning and sustain environments.
Dream Networks could not exist without the individuals and companies who dedicate their time, expertise and financial support. Our collaborative team is invaluable in enabling the sustainable design processes fostered at Dream Networks to thrive. I am just the dreamer who put pen to paper and asked who wants to join in on the fun!
