CS-2017-309 Review of Funding for Play Schemes

Closed 31 Oct 2016

Opened 15 Sep 2016


Overview of proposal

The proposal is to cease grant funding for holiday play scheme provision in the borough. This is funded currently through a grant and is used to support, develop and fund voluntary run holiday play schemes across the borough.

Overall impact of proposed change

The proposal will mean that the Council no longer providers any funding to support voluntary run holiday play schemes in the borough, for children aged between 4 and 14 years of age. However the current grant recipient as an independent organisation does have the ability to apply for other sources of grant funding.

Impact on affected service users

There could be a reduction of play opportunities for children in the borough after school in term time and during school holidays

Total Savings: 2017/18 £24,000 ongoing & 2018/19 £16,000 ongoing
