Your Holiday Hub returns this winter offering free activities and food to Bristol’s children and young people

December 7, 2022

Children and young people who are eligible for free school meals will once again be able to access free holiday activities and nutritious meals this winter break.

With over 180 activities to choose from this holiday, including festive arts and crafts, cooking workshops and even Ninja Warrior, eligible families are encouraged to find out what’s on this winter through the Your Holiday Hub website. Children and young people aged four to 16 who are eligible, and in-receipt of free school meals can access Your Holiday Hub for free.

Eligible families will also receive free school meal vouchers for the full winter holiday, which will be distributed by schools.

Funded by the UK Government’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, over 3,700 Bristol children and young people benefitted from the programme over the summer holiday.

Food is central to the programme, as with each activity children and young people will also receive a hot meal and learn about food and healthy living. 1,960 activity packs and food parcels will be delivered to 45 organisations across Bristol this winter.

A full list of organisations and activities is available on the Your Holiday Hub website.

Eligible children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) or an education, health and care plan are welcome at YHH. Families can contact the organisation or session they would like to attend to discuss their child’s individual needs.
