We provide Holiday Activity packages for councils and local authorities delivering Holiday Activities and Food Programmes, as well as other out-of-school activity provisions for young people.

The Packages provide engaging, enriching and memorable activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with wider educational attainment.

They are designed for facilitators and providers to deliver and include activity plans, resources, facilitator training, impact reports and an online back up.

They ensure provision across authorities are consistent, of high quality and impactful and we can adapt them to suit the particular needs of an authority.

We have two packages available for the upcoming Christmas break:

Football and Friendship: The Christmas Truce of 1914 Package

This package uses the themes of football and friendship to bring young people together and to create a space to talk about positive action. It brings history to life with meaningful activities, practical resources and sport challenges. Comes with training for facilitators and an online back up option.

Food and Feelings Package

This package brings healthy eating to life and makes the connections between food and wellbeing. It provides clear and meaningful ‘pick up and go’ activities for facilitators. Each Council will receive their own Recipe Book with recipes written by the young participants. Comes with training for facilitators and an online back up option.

This format has been piloted and delivered successfully in the London Borough of Barnet. It gave the council an opportunity to create a consistent, high-quality programme across their Summer Camps while connecting with issues important to young people.

“Overall the feedback received from our sites was very positive and the important messages behind these two projects were welcomed and promoted to the young people who attended.” Joseph Jackson, BACE Holidays and Positive Activities Coordinator.
