Happy Healthy Holidays is a city-wide initiative to support, coordinate and fund the delivery of much needed free holiday food and fun activities for children this summer across all of Birmingham's ten districts.
Funded by the Department for Education, Happy Healthy Holidays aims to increase and improve the quality of holiday provision with food where it is most needed. Its purpose is to help those families that find the summer particularly challenging in terms of being able to access affordable healthy food and fun physical activities. This includes the city's 49,714 children that are eligible for free school meals.
As part of the programme we are launching a new city-wide funding and support package scheme for projects that promote Happy Healthy Holiday activities with a food component for school-aged children and young people.
If your organisation can provide holiday places for children this summer, then we want to hear from you!
We are looking to work with a range of providers including; schools, nurseries, children centres, youth organisations, community centres and many other settings.
We are also campaigning for a 'call to action' from local residents and businesses to volunteer and support the programme in whatever capacity they can. This might mean simply helping to spread the word and raise awareness of the programme, through to active involvement and lending a hand at community settings to support delivery.
