The Summer of Activities for Children & Young People Fund has now been allocated to a host of voluntary organisations across Stirling to deliver activities and experiences supporting the wellbeing of children and young people over the summer period. A fun and exciting range of activities and experiences, some integrating food and wider family support, is now on offer and particularly targeted at:
- Children from low income households
- Children from those priority family groups identified in the Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan: larger families; families with a disabled child or adult; young mothers; families with children under one; and minority ethnic families
- Children from families who have been shielding during the pandemic and whose ability to engage in activities and socialise will have been very limited
- Children with a disability or additional support need
- Care experienced children and young people
- Young carers
- Children in need of protection
- Children supported by a child’s plan
- Children who have undergone significant transitions during lockdown or will experience them this year, including starting in ELC, starting primary school, moving to secondary school and leaving school.
The priority of the fund is to help address the negative impacts associated with extended periods of isolation and lack of participation in normal activities during the pandemic, which have affected children, young people and families across Stirling. Through the delivery of a range of activities within local communities, there will be opportunities for them to socialise and reconnect with peers and others during the summer.
Please see the following list of Delivery Partners and a brief overview of the free opportunities they are offering; some of them have already identified participants for their summer programmes and some have spaces available. Please make direct contact with them for further information and to book a place.
