Thousands of pounds of funding has been agreed for a playscheme to provide disabled children and young people with activities in school holidays.

The scheme will operate for four-19-year-olds in north-west Leeds during the Easter and summer school holidays.

A grant of £4,050 for the project, which will be operated by the Aireborough Summer activities Scheme, was approved by councillors from Leeds City Council’s North West Outer Area Committee Horsforth ward councillor Dawn Collins said the project would benefit young people in the area.

She said: “I am always been keen to support young people and children in Horsforth and this grant will provide enjoyable and challenging activities for disabled children to ensure that they can get as much out of the upcoming school holidays as possible.

“Some of these young people have challenging disabilities and it is really positive that these play schemes can perhaps alleviate some of those challenges and provide fun activities that everyone can participate in.

"It is essential that we help vulnerable people to lead fulfilling lives and these plays scheme should help to do just that.”
