New children's play fund announced by Scottish Government

Go Play will offer two-year funding to voluntary organisations

The Scottish Government has announced a new £4m fund for voluntary organisations offering play facilities for children.

Charities and community groups will be able to bid for two-year funding from the Go Play scheme, which is being managed by grant-making body Inspiring Scotland.

Adam Ingram, Scotland's minister for children and early years, said money would be awarded to groups working to improve play opportunities among five to 13-year-olds. He said voluntary groups would be able to submit funding bids from mid-September.

A Scottish Government spokeswoman told Third Sector it was too early to confirm how much money charities would be able to apply for and when the applications deadline would be.
