We are inviting town and parish councils and constituted organisations to apply for match funding to invest in North Somerset play areas.
The £250,000 ‘Improving Play Spaces Fund’ has been set up to offer capital match funding of up to 50% following approval of the 2022-23 budget by councillors in February.
The fund has been created to enable town and parish councils and local groups and organisations to enhance and improve their local children’s and young people’s play facilities. The funding will provide up to 50% of the cost of the project, with the remaining funding being provided from other sources.
This fund is likely to be popular and we are keen to maximise the number of projects we can support. With that in mind, funding will be capped at £20,000 for each project. Only under exceptional circumstances will a single project be awarded more than this.
Projects that enhance the accessibility and inclusivity of play facilities to children of all ages and abilities will be prioritised.
