Christmas Holiday Activities and Food Programme
CCC has ongoing funding from the Department for Education to enable families, who receive free school meals due to the benefits they receive, to book free places at a local holiday scheme this Christmas. An eligible child will be entitled to up to 16 hours for free at a participating holiday scheme. A nutritious meal is also provided as part of the programme and children and young people will have much needed social contact and opportunities to engage in physical activity. Parents can book places directly with participating holiday schemes, more information can be found at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/haf
While recognising that Covid levels are concerning people, there are huge well-being benefits for children attending the programme which will operate within all safety requirements. We are also offering food hampers to all families who book places at a participating holiday scheme or family experience this Christmas which is an additional initiative in recognition of the food poverty families may be experiencing.
