RBF runs a wide variety of activities for children, young people and families throughout the year across Essex, Hertfordshire and Greater London. We are delighted to be working with a number of partners to develop new work in and around Purfleet in 2020/21...

Children Playing

3F's Cooking group

Our 3F's group focuses on fun food and friends! Each week we invite the whole family to come along and join us as we learn to cook a healthy fresh and very cheap meal from scratch! Join in with some fun outdoor activities while what we've made is cooking before we sit down at the table and eat together. 

School Children


RBF has been involved in delivering services to families throughout the lockdown period, including caring for keyworker children, detached work with young people on the streets and much more. As such, we are well practised at running COVID Secure settings and you can be certain we will do our utmost to comply with all guidance and best practice, including:

  • Keeping children in 'bubbles' (currently of 15);

  • Practising social distancing wherever possible;

  • Regular handwashing/santising;

  • Enhanced cleaning procedures for all equipment;

  • Avoiding activities like singing which has been proven to potentially be a mechanism where COVDI19 can be spread;

  • Moving activities outdoors where space/weather permits.

Finally, we would remind all parents/carers that if their child, anyone in the child's household or social bubble develops any of the COVID19 symptoms they must not attend any activities they have booked for and must inform RBF of the results of their COVID19 test.

Washing Hands


Depending on numbers of children attending each session, the activities will always have two or more RBF staff members/volunteers in attendance. Our staff hold all of the relevant qualifications/experience to provide children's and youth activities and are part of a wider team who deliver hundreds of hours of children’s work every week, and will be supported by team members from our partner agencies who have similar levels of experience.


RBF have a full set of policies and procedures around Safeguarding of Children, Health & Safety, etc., that are all tried and tested as we work with thousands of children every year. We hold full Public Liability Insurance up to £10,000,000. Parents/carers who secure a place at the Club will be given access to our policy pack on request.
