Extra support for disadvantaged children during school holidays

By January 22, 2019Funding Opportunities

Deadline 7th February

Organisations from across the country have been invited to bid for a share of the multi-million-pound Government investment to deliver holiday clubs for pupils eligible for free school meals during the 2019 summer break.

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.

To build on that in 2019, the Department for Education has now confirmed it will more than quadruple funding and strengthen the programme to encourage co-ordination in local communities so that even more disadvantaged children can benefit.

The bidding process is open now and will close on 7 February 2019.
