Cornwall Council will be funding free activities for a range of young people from the beginning of April. The activities will include events at Council leisure centres as well a range of private providers.
The Activity Pass will be provided free of charge to families with school aged children who are in receipt of free school meals or the higher rate of working families tax credit and to children in care.
The value of each pass will be £195 and they will last for a year. Each time a child uses the pass, the cost of the activity will be deducted from their 'account'. Activity providers will receive the full value of the activity from the Council.
What I want to see is more and more activity providers being able to take part in the scheme. If you want to know more about the Activity Pass, contact me.
