This report sets out the findings from an evaluation of the Winter of Wellbeing programme where a package of wellbeing support was delivered for Children and young people across Wales between October 2021 and March 2022.

Winter of Wellbeing (WoW) was a £20m package of wellbeing funding from Welsh Government to support children and young people to recover from the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. WoW provided children and young people aged 0 to 25 in Wales access to free activities, including opportunities to play and engage in leisure, recreational, sporting and cultural activities, as well as childcare and formal education. These activities are crucial in supporting the social, emotional, physical and mental wellbeing of children and young people and recovery from COVID-19.
