On 8 November 2020, the Government announced that the holiday activities and food programme, which has provided healthy food and enriching activities to a small proportion of disadvantaged children since 2018, will be expanded across the whole of England in 2021. The programme will cover the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays in 2021 This funding is provided to local authorities to coordinate free holiday provision, including healthy food and enriching activities for children who receive benefits-related free school meals. It is of course be optional for eligible children to attend this provision if they wish. This gives the Council and its partners a fantastic opportunity to provide a ‘summer of fun’ for the children, young people and families of Hull after the challenges they have had to deal with due to Covid-19.
