Summer Activities and Food Programme 2022

Dear Parent / Carer,

Please find below a message Liverpool City Council about holiday activities for children entitled to Free School Meals.

I am contacting you with information about the Summer holiday activities and food programme.

The Summer Activities and Food programme starts soon and there are lots of great activities happening over the school holidays for children, aged from reception to 16 years old, who are eligible for benefits related free school meals. They will be able to access hundreds of activities throughout the Summer break including specific provision available for children with SEND or additional needs. There's a great range of activities across the city including boxing, trampolining, football, music, dance, cycling, cooking, climbing, films, bowling, arts and crafts, drama, Jubilee activities, trips out and much more! Every day there will be a meal available for every child that attends.

To find out where schemes are in your ward click on this link - http://www.merseyplay.com/haf-holiday-activities-and-food-fund/

or visit www.Merseyplay.com and click on the HAF link.


As parents/ guardians/ carers you will just need to choose an activity, then contact that organisation to book a place. If your child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then you can discuss this with the organisation when you book.

All schools have been asked to forward information to the eligible young people.

Each organisation will have either a telephone number, email address or online booking system. There is no central booking system so you will need to contact the providers directly.

Around 100 programmes have been funded across the city and many of them are taking part in our growing project which will provide organisations with the tools to develop or enhance a community growing project in order to teach young people about growing their own fruit and veg.

We hope that our families will be able to engage in some of these activities over the coming weeks.

Kind regards,

Alsop High School on behalf of Liverpool City Council
