The design council has just unveiled who are the lucky winner of their £100,000 investment in conjunction with Guy's and St Thomas' Charity..
The prize is being split between three entrepreneurs to make their new business ideas a reality.
The Knee High Design Competition works with families and local communities, designers and entrepreneurs to come up with ideas and designs to improve the health and well-being of under 5 year olds living in the London Boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth.
It’s estimated that one in three children live in poverty in both London boroughs, and one in 7 children haven’t visited a park or play space in the last year.
This scheme will help parents with new inventive ways to keep children entertained within at home. It will be an on-site advice service to parents to encourage interactive play and healthy routines.
Pop up Parks
An enterprise transforming neglected urban spaces. Created with parents, local communities and local children to create outdoor play spaces in areas that usually are dull and boring backgrounds to a child's day.
An online app that allows people to post and share activities. It will encourage parents and their children to build networks and overcome isolation which can occur when living in densely populated areas of London.
