Greenspace Scotland has announced that the Outdoor Community Play Fund for 2021-22 is now open for applications.
Charities can apply for grants of up to £25,000 to work with children and their families to encourage them to play and learn together, help to improve attachments, strengthen bonds and parental confidence in supporting their children’s play.
Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, outdoor play is recognised as being increasingly vital, for parents and children alike. This year it has an added focus on supporting parents and facilitating family play.
The fund is for Scottish registered charities only, and is to enable children (and their families) to engage in outdoor play which is free to access for the participants.
The closing date for applications is midday on the 26th April 2021.
