Gwion Bowen, Ceredigion Youth Service’s Children and Young People’s
Participation Officer said:

“We are very grateful and appreciative to West Wales Holiday Cottages for providing us with this opportunity for young people in Ceredigion again this for young people in Ceredigion this year. Like ourselves, West Wales
Holiday Cottages recognise that many young people living in Ceredigion
may experience difficulties in accessing training, support and social
activities due to socio-economic issues. The bursary was extremely
successful last year, with three young people gaining financial support
to help them with their projects. We hope that the bursary is a success
again this year, and that it will benefit a young person or people in

Do you need financial support to reach your goals? Would you benefit
from having financial support to help you with training or equipment
that is required for your chosen vocation? Are you looking for support
to start your own enterprise? Or are you a member of a community group
and looking for financial support to purchase resources or equipment?
