The Merseyside Playing Fields Association work to promote all forms of play and recreation for children and young people. We also work with disadvantaged children from deprived areas of Merseyside. We work with the five local authorities these being Liverpool City Region, Sefton, St Helens, Knowsley and Wirral. We work to raise funds and make grants to groups organising activities for children. We also co-operate in securing and preserving recreational facilities.
