Happy Healthy Holidays in Ladywood District

General information on the scheme:

Happy Healthy Holidays is a Dept. For Education funded project to provide fun summer holiday activities and food for children across Birmingham. Each child can attend 4 days of provision for 4 weeks of the summer holiday, getting 4 hours of activities including a healthy meal.

How do we register?

Registration is online at click here

How do we book places at a particular site?

Places cannot be booked at sites, as our funders have required that the scheme has open access so that people who have not registered before the scheme starts can still access it. Spaces at each site will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Is this a childcare provision scheme?

No, not really – each child can only access 4 hours per day, and the scheme is targeted at children who are eligible for free school meals. This will not work for a working parent as childcare as we cannot care for their children all day.

What does this cost?

All provision is free, as this is funded by the Dept. For Education

Can I attend more than one session?

No – each child can attend one 4 hour session each day. At Active Wellbeing Sites with two sessions running, they can only access one session and cannot stay for the whole day.

Am I eligible?

Anyone who either lives in Birmingham or attends a school in Birmingham can attend. Unfortunately the funding is for the Birmingham local authority area and we cannot accept children from outside this area into our schemes.

Will the food be halal?

Yes. All food served on this scheme will be halal, we will also be avoiding beef entirely. Every site will offer vegan and vegetarian alternatives to a meat/fish dish.

Questions about provision being run by organisations other than TAWS

TAWS cannot answer any of the questions, you will need to contact the provider for the site they are interested in, contact details will be on the Sport Birmingham website.

Do parents/guardians need to stay?

Parents and guardians are encouraged to stay but this is not required. Younger siblings may also stay if their parent/guardian stays as well – we cannot care for under 5s.

Any other questions

Please ask them to email happyhealthyholidays@theaws.org with any other questions, or take their details and someone from the Happy Healthy Holidays scheme will get back to them.
