Taylor Eden – Play hero

Taylor Eden is a hero when it comes to getting children active and having fun.

Taylor works for Powered by CAN, previously known as Creative Academies – a Sandwell organisation that delivers play sessions in parks, community centres and lots more.

Taylor, who is 24 and from West Bromwich, is a role model to the 5,000+ children and young people aged between six and 16 who she works with.

She helps children develop their confidence, build friendships and, most of all, have fun. She encourages children and parents to become play champions and set up their own sessions.

CEO of Powered by CAN Jerrel Jackson says: “I am really proud of Taylor and her ongoing commitment towards making a difference to the lives of children and young people.”
