Free Activities and food for children-Oversubscribed



We are very proud to be chosen as a partner in the Milton Keynes Summer of Play 2021 (including Holiday Activities and Food #HAF)

We have 400 free places to offer Milton Keynes families from 2 to 28 August.


The council has been awarded grant funding, by the Department for Education (DfE), to coordinate free activities and food, for children in receipt of benefit-related Free School Meals (FSM), during the Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays in 2021.

In addition to this, we understand that it has been a difficult time for all families, so locally The Council have increased the funding available to ensure that all children and young people can access these events during Summer 2021.

They want to offer a diverse range of events this summer to meet the local interests and needs of children, young people and their families. They hope this programme of activities will help children and young people to:

  • eat more healthily over the school holidays;
  • be more active during the school holidays;
  • take part in engaging and enriching activities;
  • be safe and not to be socially isolated;
  • have greater knowledge of health and nutrition; and
  • be more engaged with school and other local services
