Thanks to significant funding from the Department for Education, a Healthy Holiday programme is being delivered across Sheffield to support thousands of families during the summer holidays. In North East Sheffield alone, there are close to 20 organisations preparing healthy activities and meals in a COVID secure environment.
Organisations across North East Sheffield have been running holiday activities for a couple of years now. It’s an opportunity for young people and parents/carers to spend time with others in a safe and friendly space. Activities in the past have included sports, arts, drama, baking and much more. One Nana of 2 girls that attended last year’s activities said “The girls loved the Circus skills & have tried new activities they’ve never tried before. It was lovely to see them playing with other children from the area. It was also really nice to sit down with other families to have a community meal & it was appreciated when we could take food home afterwards.”
