Are you running activities over the summer school holidays 2021?

We are seeking to fund a diverse range of projects and enrichment activities which are attractive and engaging for all ages (5 to 16 years) and abilities of school children and include nutritious food.

Activities can be open to all children with priority given to those receiving benefits-related free school meals. Those not on free school meals can pay to attend if there are sufficient spaces. Spaces for children on free school meals will be made available at no cost to the family.

The aim of this fund, which has been provided by the Department of Education, is to make the positive benefits of holiday clubs available to all those on benefits-related free school meals for at least four hours a day, four days a week for four weeks of the summer holidays (between the 26 July and the 1 September).

Using the map

The map below shows the population of children eligible for free school meals in their localities. If you click on the number in a particular area you will see the break down into primary and secondary.

Use your mouse to zoom in on the map and to navigate around the map.

Applications are invited from voluntary, community groups, schools and private providers who can demonstrate an ability to support children to:

  • eat healthier over the school holidays
  • be more active over the school holidays
  • take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing
  • have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition.

This includes existing providers who can expand their provision and also groups who can provide innovative and specialised activities.

For more information on the fund including criteria and eligibility read the accompanying application guidance sheets. [PDF, 284Kb] Please complete and submit your application form before the 30 June.

You can read a summary of the questions in the eform [PDF, 88Kb] before you begin completing it and that may help you prepare the information you will need to complete the form. Once you begin completing the form you will need to finish it and submit it straight away.

Useful information


School food standards cover any food on the premises including the food brought in by children themselves.

Physical Activity

Children are expected to do 60 minutes per day exercise that should make them breathe faster and feel warmer. This exercise can be spread out throughout the day.


If you are not interested in providing a holiday programme but your building or venue is available through the summer, would you be interested in partnering with providers who would like access to a building?

If you are interested please email us – fuelled@northlincs.gov.uk

Volunteers greatly enhance the Fuelled Holiday Activity programme offer. We are currently in partnership with the North Lincs Alliance Volunteer Hub in recruiting volunteers for the summer to help us:

  •  deliver fun and enriching activities to children across North Lincolnshire (DBS checks needed for this role)
  • promote uptake and engagement with the activities across the county (this may be through presentations at school assemblies, or by making telephone calls to remind parents of activities and how to sign up)

We will offer flexible volunteering opportunities. To sign up as a volunteer please email alliancevolunteerhub@hwrcc.org.uk or complete the online form.
