A process evaluation of a scheme supporting the wellbeing of children and young people (aged 0 to 25).

On 16 June 2021, the Welsh Government announced a £5 million Summer of Fun for children and young people aged 0 to 25. Over 67,500 children and young people took part.

The independent evaluation found widespread support for the programme across national and local stakeholders. Children and young people were supported to re-engage with community provision and develop a range of personal and social skills following the lockdowns. It also supported the physical and mental wellbeing of participants. Providers benefited from much needed financial investment following lockdowns. Local authority leads believed that communities felt positive about the investment in them.

Senior stakeholders, local authorities and children and young people recommended sustained funding to support COVID-19 recovery of children and young people over the longer-term.
