About Healthy Holidays

Healthy Holidays is about supporting families who need help to access food and activities to keep their children healthy through the school holidays. In Barnsley the scheme is funded by the Department for Education.

Children who receive free school meals as you/they receive a certain benefit can get a free place at our Healthy Holidays clubs. Every club provides each child with a delicious and nutritious meal.

The clubs run during the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays. Our next programme will run from Tuesday 2 to Friday 5 January 2024.

If you attended one of our summer clubs, we'd love to hear what you thought. To leave us feedback, please fill in our healthy holidays feedback form.

You can take a look at the fun we got up to during the 2023 summer holidays in our video.
