Julie Morgan MS, Deputy Minister for Social Services
Following a successful “Summer of Fun” in 2021 and the current “Winter of Wellbeing”, I am pleased to announce £7m to fund a Summer of Fun in 2022.
As part of our response to COVID recovery, a £5m Summer of Fun was delivered in 2021 to provide free activities for children and young people age 0 – 25 years in Welsh and English. The activities provided support for their social, emotional and physical wellbeing to help re build their confidence to integrate back into the community.
Over 67,000 enjoyed a host of free indoor and outdoor activities including music, theatre, sea-based sport activities, climbing and zip lining, offering inclusive opportunities to take part in activities to engage with society again through play based activities.
We are building on this success, offering another Summer of Fun this year of free activities to support our young people and help families across Wales with the rising cost of living over the summer months. I look forward to seeing more of our children and young people enjoying their summer again this year in Wales.
