Eden District Council launches new grant to improve outdoor play areas

Are you an organisation looking to improve your outdoor play space?

If you are looking to improve your playground but struggling to find the budget, you could qualify for the new Eden Play Areas Improvement Grant.

The new fund from Eden District Council can help with a wide range of play area and open leisure space improvements – whether that’s the purchasing or refurbishment of equipment, outdoor gyms, laying new surfaces, installing shelter or planting greenery.

The aim of the grant is to support projects that deliver wide community benefit for the towns and parishes in Eden. Up to £12,500 is available for the right project, subject to 20% match funding.

Act fast! The window for applications closes on Friday 20 January 2022 at 5pm.

For more information, contact the Eden District Council Communities and Well-being Team on 01768 817817 or email edencommunityfund@eden.gov.uk.

Eden District Council’s Community Fund - for projects and events which deliver wider community benefit in Eden – is also being increased from up to £10,000 to up to £12,500. For more information visit: www.eden.gov.uk/your-environment/your-community/community-funding/eden-community-fund.
