Bridgend County ‘Summer of Fun’ 2022 Grants open now!


Summer of Fun 2022   

Deadline for applications  24th June 2022 at 2pm 



Providing play, leisure, recreational, sporting, cultural activities for children and young people in Bridgend County Borough

We want to support our children and young people by providing the space and time for free activities to run this summer including: 

  • creating space and opportunity for free summer fun activities 
  • supporting children and young people’s enjoyment and fun through offering opportunities to express themselves through such activities; 
  • community based interactive, creative and play/fun-based initiatives for all ages; 
  • providing opportunities to play and/or take part in activities with friends and peers; 

The Summer of Fun programme aims to provide all children and young people aged 0 – 25, with the opportunity to access free activities in addition to regulated childcare provision (not instead of).  

Successful projects will support the social, emotional, physical and mental wellbeing of all children and young people, including tackling social isolation and further developing young people’s confidence to re-engage with each other and with wider society. 


Things to note: 

Grants for playscheme/youth provision can be up to £750 and they can add value to any existing plans you may have. This is revenue funding only, small amounts of consumables may be considered (e.g. arts/crafts), but food is not eligible. The funding can be used for provision on weekdays or weekends, held during the day or in the evenings.  

The timetable for the Summer of Fun provision can be from 1 July 2021 but activity MUST be completed by 30 September 2022.
