The Bromford Youth Activity Programme 2018, in partnership with Cotswold District Council

If your child is aged between 4 years and 16 years and you live in the Cotswold District then you can apply for up to £150.00 per child or £300 for a family towards activities for your children to take part in… interested then please read more below.

This funding is aimed at making the most of what is available for parents and children. We find that often having the money to fund specific or after school activities can prevent young people or families accessing opportunities that are available within their local area. This funding could help start an individual or family to undertake an activity and then work towards budgeting to enable them to continue this going forward.

Examples of what the funding could support include:

Afterschool activities (sports, arts and crafts)

Swimming lessons

Club membership where it meets the funding criteria

Additional academic tuition i.e. maths, English outside of usual school hours

Music lessons

School trips that involve overnight stays

 

What it won’t fund

Childcare

Equipment or clothing for activities

Contributions towards family holidays

Musical instruments

Books for materials for craft activities

 

What next?
