New Grant Scheme Launched for Shropshire’s Summer Holidays Activities and Food Programme

Below is information about new grant funding for providers running holiday activities during the summer, for vulnerable children and young people.

This is a fantastic opportunity for STAP members to apply for funding. Were really keen to programme an exciting, broad and high quality offer for our children and young people, with a range of arts and cultural opportunities. 

Best Wishes

A New Grant Scheme Launched for Shropshire’s Summer Holidays Activities and Food Programme

Shropshire HAF (Holiday Activities & Food) Summer Programme 2021.

The Summer HAF programme application and information can be accessed through the Shropshire HAF webpage.

The funding is intended to subsidise free places on new or existing holiday programmes for children and young people who are eligible for free school meals. In Shropshire, there are more than 5,000 children and young people registered to claim benefit related free school meals.

We would like to invite applications from a wide range of providers of holiday programmes and/or enrichment/cultural activities from across the county.

We welcome partnership bids between venues, activity and food providers; proposals for enrichment activities that can be delivered as a one off and/or toured; and applications that combine the council grant with other funding to enhance the offer.

The activities can also be available to any child or young person not eligible for free school meals, who can pay to attend.

Applications close Tuesday 1st June 2021

Please pass this information onto your networks, apologies for any cross posting.
