For the past two years, we have worked closed with Exeter City Community Trust to provide well-attended holiday clubs for children in receipt of free school meals.
The school holidays can be a difficult time for some families. For some children this can lead to a holiday experience gap, with children from low-income households being:
less likely to access organised out-of-school activities
more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health
more likely to experience social isolation
Our successful holiday clubs have made a positive impact on many families in our local area. For more information about the Holiday Activities and Food Programme, please click here.
