Who can access the programme

The holiday activities and food programme is available to all children and young people who are eligible for free school meals because of household finances.   This offer does not apply to children who receive universal free school meals at infant / primary school.

The programme is being delivered by our partner organisations.

What happens next? (registered applicants only)

  • When you complete and submit the registration, we will carry out a check to confirm that your child is currently receiving free school meals.  
  • Confirmation of free school meal entitlement will be passed to the provider that you selected on the registration form
  • Pick up your activities and food pack on the date selected.
