Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is, in a nutshell, Playdale taking responsibility for our effect on environmental and social well-being. It’s all about ‘giving something back’ and promoting positive social and environmental change.

Our work in this area has two main focal points:

Ongoing environmental improvements

Playdale is committed to minimising the negative impact that its business has on the natural environment. In order to do this we has an Environmental Management System which is compliant with ISO14001 and includes consideration of the activities of both our supply chain and our subcontractors, ensuring we use sustainable FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved sources of timbers and minimising, as much as possible, the production of waste and use of fuels.

Demonstrating support for our community

Playdale is committed to providing volunteer support to the local community. Playdale supports local causes and initiatives through voluntary efforts of staff. We believe we serve our community better by providing skills and support from our team. Each year Playdale staff members nominate good causes to support for the following year. These are then put to a company-wide staff vote and the top two choices then become our chosen good causes for the rest of the following year.

Our 2024 Good Causes


The Bay Search and Rescue is a highly skilled team of volunteers dedicated to saving lives in maritime emergencies. Specialising in swift-water rescue and boat operations, their expertise, advanced training, and cutting-edge equipment enable them to navigate challenging conditions and ensure the safety of communities along coastal regions like those in our local area.


Much like Playdale, Right to Play UK champions the power of play in children’s lives, emphasising its role in education, health, and social development. By collaborating with them, we are showcasing our commitment to children’s well-being and actively contributing to fostering inclusive play environments for underprivileged children, while tangibly impacting less advantaged communities, enabling them to thrive through the universal language of play.

We’re looking forward to lots of fun and successful fundraising throughout the year, so watch this space for coverage of these!
