Museums Galleries Scotland - Summer Programme Fund


This fund is designed to help restore the well-being of children and young people during summer 2021 by enabling museums to provide fun, safe and local opportunities for these groups to connect, play, be active and enjoy themselves.

They are looking for activity that will support children and young people’s lasting connection or re-connection with;

  • peers/friends
  • trusted adults (family/carers/volunteers)
  • community
  • their environment and nature

The fund is particularly keen to see;

  • activity for children and young people in areas and communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic
  • activity encouraging children to spend time outdoors
  • activity encouraging learning and education outcomes through play
