All children and young people under the age of 25 (including those from vulnerable groups) can participate in a range of activities across the borough.

Our local leisure centres, youth zones, parks and libraries will offer free street dance sessions, roller-skating, boxing, rowing and football coaching, as well as arts and music, creative writing, reading challenges, discussions and debates, games nights, music production, and more.

Young people aged nine to 19 years old, and up to 25 for those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), will have access to Newham’s youth empowerment services, which will provide group support sessions, one-to-one support and outreach.

Newham Ability Camp, Resources for Autism, Bikeworks and Newham Music will also be available for young people with SEND.

Children on benefits related free school meals will be eligible for the free Holiday Activities and Food programme.
