Community based organisations are now able to bid for money to deliver activities for young people in Cheltenham. Cheltenham Borough Council and Gloucestershire County Council are working together to run and fund the ‘Positive Activities’ scheme.

Gloucestershire County Council has allocated £50,000 towards the fund, which will ensure that young people can access activities across the whole borough of Cheltenham. The fund will help community groups to run activities that make a positive difference to young people, their health and wellbeing and the communities they live in.

Richard Gibson, Strategy and Engagement Manager said: “This is the fourth year that the two councils have been able to support so many different voluntary and community groups who provide 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."
