A message from Planet Youth:- Dear parents, we encourage you to attend a webinar next Thursday 19th, called Fristund.is! – the amazing Icelandic Leisurecard scheme. This is about a scheme in Iceland that we, Planet Youth, are hoping may be coming to our region soon. The Leisurecard there is an annual grant of €350 for every child 6-18 years old to spend solely on hobbies and sports, extracurricular. There have been amazing outcomes for their young population because of it and it’s all administered through one website called www.fristund.is. Hundreds and hundreds of activities; sports, arts, music, hobbies, all of which are professionally-led because it’s funded by the income generated from the scheme.
