Gloucestershire County Council has allocated a fund of £50,000 towards seeking to ensure that young people can access activities across the Borough of Cheltenham which make a positive difference to them, their health and wellbeing, and the communities in which they live.

Richard Gibson, Strategy and Engagement Manager at Cheltenham Borough Council, said: “This is the third year running the two councils have been able to support so many different voluntary and community groups in providing things for young people to do. The response to the funding in previous years has demonstrated the sheer commitment and enthusiasm of local groups to take on the challenge of providing activities for young people in our town. We recognise and welcome this effort.”

Linda Uren, Commissioning Director: Children at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “It’s great to see local communities – parish councils, charities, voluntary and community groups - coming together to provide activities for young people using funding provided by Gloucestershire County Council.  The County Council is delighted to be providing a further £50,000 to Cheltenham Borough Council again this year to continue this fantastic work. Apply for funding now and make a real difference to young people in your local community.”
