Grants for school summer holiday activities
Local authorities, charities and other third sector organisations, and holiday club providers are being invited to apply for a new £9 million fund to coordinate the delivery of free holiday clubs for disadvantaged pupils.
The aims of this grant programme are to develop a more efficient and joined-up approach to free holiday provision for disadvantaged children; and to ensure there is enough good quality free holiday provision to meet the demand from children eligible for free school meals (FSM) in the local authority during the 2019 summer holidays. The scheme follows a successful £2 million programme in the summer of 2018, which saw charities and community groups provide meals and activities such as football, play sessions and cooking classes for more than 18,000 children across the country.
The closing date for applications is the 7th February 2019.
