Deputy Minister for Social Services, Julie Morgan adds: “It is fantastic that we are able to build on the success of the Summer of Fun and continue to provide support for children and young people in Powys. Play is an important way we can help our young people re-engage and develop their skills to strengthen their social, emotional and physical wellbeing.”

Councillor Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Children's Services, said: “I am delighted that the funding has become available again this winter.
