Holiday activities and food programme

During school holidays children and young people aged 5-16 years old, including children with SEND or additional needs, can access free activities and a meal.

What's on offer?

Organisations offer a great range of free activities across the city including boxing, football, music, dance, cycling, cooking, discos, films, bowling, arts and crafts, drama, a make-up course, trips out and much more. 

Every day there will be a meal available for every child that attends.

Who can join in?

The programme is designed for children who receive benefits-related free school meals but places are available for other children too.

How can I find out about sessions?

Sessions are posted on the Merseyplay website in the run up to the school holidays.

When you have chosen an activity, you will need to contact that organisation to book a place. 

Each organisation will have either a telephone number, email address or online booking system. If your child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then please discuss this with the organisation when you book.

Liverpool City Council is working with the local schools, voluntary and community organisations, and childcare providers to provide the programme. 

Find out more about the programme on the Merseyplay website.
