Children and young people who are eligible for benefit related free school meals or are in a family currently experiencing hardship in South Tyneside can attend free activity sessions throughout the 2022 Summer holidays.
Dates and activities of the Summer Holiday Club will be announced in the coming weeks.
All events are subject to availability.
The sessions will include:
a variety of fun activities
exciting opportunities to learn and develop skills
a nutritious meal each day
Who can attend
To be eligible to attend the free Summer Holiday Club activities, children and young people must:
live in South Tyneside, and
be 5 to 16 years old, and
be eligible for benefit related free school meals, or be in a family currently experiencing hardship
We are operating on a trust based booking system which will hopefully allow families who will really benefit from free meals and activities, to access them.
The Summer Holiday Club is funded by the Department for Education's holiday activities and food programme 2022. As part of this funding, there is criteria regarding eligibility which includes children receiving benefits related free school meals or children who are part of a family experiencing hardship. All recipients of the funding must follow this criteria.
Children who aren't eligible can still attend some of the same activities, as well as other free and paid-for activities, see What's on.
We encourage you to follow any Covid-19 public health guidance in place at the time of the events.
