WEST Dunbartonshire Council is inviting community groups and organisations to apply for funding to provide free holiday activities during the Easter and summer school holidays.

SHINE 2020 is looking to aid children, young people and families during the break by helping organisations that can provide out of term time activities like sports, games, arts and lunch and breakfast clubs.

Funding is available to not-for-profit, constituted groups, providing free activities or services to children and young people in West Dunbartonshire.

In 2019, between £2,000 and £3,000 was handed out on average.
