Active Kids project funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation came to a conclusion on the 31st May 2015. The service funded for a two year period provided open access play sessions for children living in Resolven and Clyne. The service enabled children and young people aged 5-14 years old to access supervised play sessions twice a week. During the last year of the project we support 111 unique children to access a range of play opportunities within the local community.

The project has benefited children and young people by providing new play experience this year we have continued to work with existing children from the previous year but we have also reached new children and young people. This project enabled us to help children to engage with physical activity through participating in outside and indoor play opportunities, which helps children develop their sense of looking after themselves and keeping fit.

Part of the funding was to recruit 20 children and young people aged between 9-16 years over the two year period and train them in being a representative voice for children and young people of Resolven and also train them in play work skills to volunteer with the project. In the last year we recruited 11 children and young people, in total over the two years 25 children and young people. 7 children and young people remain members of Resolven Youth Forum and 3 have remained volunteering with Resolven Building Blocks.
