Food offer iconSupport with food:  If you are finding the expense of feeding your child during the school holiday period difficult to manage, click the interactive map link to find organisations in your local area that can provide you with either food items to cook a meal at home, or prepared meals for your child.

Activity OfferActivities in your area: Keeping children and young people active and entertained during the school holidays can prove tricky. The interactive map shows holiday activities taking place in your local community.  The webpage also contains activity ideas which can be done at home, particularly useful if your family is self-isolating. Check out the activities link for fun crafts, games and recipe ideas

Support offer iconSupport in your area:  School holidays can be a demanding time for parents financially, as well as in terms of managing household stress, relationships and mental wellbeing. However, there is lots of help, ideas and support available for families to make the most of the extra time together and to ensure children are ready to go back to school. Please see information and support section at the bottom of the page. 

Period Products logoProvision of period products: Period products can prove to  be an expense that  some families find hard to budget for. You can find community agencies via the map where you are able to access these products free of charge.


If you are unable to find food help you need during the school holiday from the interactive map, please visit Worcestershire Here2Help page and complete the ‘I need help’ request.
