For families who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals, the Council is making a nutritious meal offer available during the school break. The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) section in the brochure, has information of places that have been funded to provide free wholesome meals and exciting activities to those who receive benefits related free school meals. Please make sure you have a look at this section and book slots as early as possible. 
The Council is also offering a range of inclusive activities to cater for our vulnerable young people so that no one is left out. 
A range of activities are available across our libraries, youth zones and parks, with many suitable for the whole family too. The summer offer will ease the financial pressure some face and give children, young people and their families an opportunity to take part in events, make new friends, learn new skills and most importantly have fun!
