Holiday Activities & Food Programme - Information Evening For Providers

Somerset County Council has joined up with Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership, to organise a programme for the forthcoming Easter Holidays aimed at countering the triple inequalities facing Somerset's most disadvantaged young people – holiday hunger, physical inactivity and social isolation.

In an initiative funded by the Department for Education, existing or prospective organisers of holiday activity programmes can access funding to deliver daily, four-hour programmes where those young people in receipt of free school meals will be able to take part in a range of food, sports and cultural activities, and receive advice on nutrition and cooking skills.

The aim of this fund is to make the positive benefits of holiday clubs available to all those on benefits-related free school meals for at least four hours a day, four days a week for six school holiday weeks of the year. For now, we are only inviting applications to cover a minimum of four days and a maximum of eight days of provision during the 2021 Easter school holiday.

We would be delighted to welcome prospective delivery organisations to attend an information webinar which will take place on Tuesday 23rd February. For anyone unable to attend the live webinars a recording will be available along with an FAQ list.

The grants programme for the Easter holidays is being administered by Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership and opened on Thursday 11th February. Anyone hoping to deliver at Easter is encouraged to find out more about the criteria of the programme on the SASP website - The deadline for applications is 1st March 2021.
