Cymorth - the Children and Youth Support Fund
Cymorth is administered through local Children and Young People's Partnerships within each Local Authority. It has replaced the former programmes Sure Start, Children and Youth Partnership Fund, National Childcare Strategy, Youth Access Initiative and Play Grant.
The Assembly Government has, following consultation, drawn up core aims for children and young people, founded in the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child. The overall aim of Cymorth is to use partnership working and targeted investment in disadvantaged communities to promote those aims, and to impact positively, in the medium term, on the indicators of well being for children and young people.
Partnerships submit plans each October with minimum investments for each of the 0-3, 4-10 and 11-25 age groups, and across seven themes:
1. Family support
2. Health improvement
3. Play, leisure and enrichment
4. Empowerment, participation and active citizenship
5. Community development
6. Training, mentoring and information
7. Building childcare provision.
