Staff Team

Pip Dimmock – Interplay CEO

Pip Started work for Interplay in 2013 as the lead on the ENabled Project and has over 20 years experience in supporting both children and adults with additional needs.  Pip understands how important it is to get the right support throughout a young person’s journey from childhood to adulthood. Due to her experience of working within adult services she feels the only way to achieve this is through having a joined-up and transparent play and transitions service that helps children and young people develop the skills, confidence and well-being they need for later life.  

She has previously worked for Mencap Cymru as the Participation officer for Adult services in Swansea and in many other supported projects for adults with learning disabilities  in England. She has had first hand experience of child and young people's mental health issues and strives to ensure that the services that Interplay offer cater for all. That sessions are integrated and are accessible to children and young people with diagnosed,  undiagnosed hidden disabilities and mental health needs, enabling them to overcome social and personal barriers through play. 

Pip likes anything art and crafty, although she feels that painting is the best way to relax. She has wide musical taste, but is a self confessed country music fan. She enjoys the escapism of reading, loves being outdoors, hugging trees and swimming. She also enjoys playing adventure computer games, spending time with her family and having FUN.
