Children between the ages of 5-15 who are in receipt of benefits-related Free School Meals
Children of families referred by our professional or community partners
How can I access the free activities and clubs?
Through the online booking system, you’ll be able to book directly onto activities or link to contact providers directly to book.
For information on the data collected in the booking system please read the Holiday Activities and Food Privacy Notice
Accessibility and Children with SEND
Our full programme is inclusive of all needs, however, we do have some specialist providers who are really experienced in activities for children with SEND and we have secured spaces at these clubs so that they can be offered first to the children that would most benefit from them.
Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and booking.
