Inspiring Scotland is seeking applications for the Organised Outdoor Community Play Fund.

The Organised Outdoor Community Play Fund is funded by the Scottish Government and set up to support children’s health and wellbeing through outdoor play.

The Scottish Government is providing £380,000 for play charities to provide organised outdoor play opportunities for children in the most deprived communities in Scotland.

Being able to play outdoors at this time is recognised as being a vital component missing for many children over the past few months, and as we come through this pandemic, play, and in particular outdoor play is a method that will enable children to be more physically active, engage with friends and improve a sense of wellbeing.  It is an aid for children in their recovery and in building their resilience.

Open from Tuesday July 14th, the Fund will support eligible Scottish registered charities delivering organised outdoor play-based opportunities for children.The deadline is Monday July 20th. 

Find guidance notes and the application fund on the Inspiring Scotland website (this link will take you away from our website).
