Does your organisation want to provide positive activities for children and young people across Merton?
Have you thought about widening children and young people's play experiences?
Play Opportunities Fund
Merton's Play Opportunities Fund is awarding grants of up to £10,000 to play projects (working with children aged 8-13 years) which are free of charge, where children are free to choose what they do and free to come and go, unless there is a need for closed access (i.e., supervising children with disabilities).
Projects may include mobile play provision, opening up community spaces for play or mini-play days.
