West Sussex County Council has received £1.6M from the Governments Holiday Activities and Food Program to support children eligible for Free School Meals. As part of this, the Council want to work with organisations and community groups across the county to provide activities and food for children in the summer and/or Christmas holidays.
If your organisation is able to provide any or all of the following, they would like to hear about how they can work with you to support as many eligible children as possible over the summer and Christmas holidays.
West Sussex County Council is interested in proposals from existing providers who may be already delivering within one or more of areas of the county, and from providers who would be interested in ‘scaling up’ their current provision.
This funding is for school aged children eligible for Free School Meals to join holiday clubs/activities and receive a nutritional meal. Additional funding has also been made available for early years providers.
Expressions of Interest are through the online questionnaire https://yourvoice.westsussex.gov.uk/haf-programme-2021 asking for key information in line with the governments requirements and an opportunity to describe your proposal.
Guidelines on the Governments requirements are set out at the Department for Education’s HAF webpage.
Any queries please email HAF@westsussex.gov.uk
Closing date for Expressions of Interest : Tuesday 15th June.
