Children and young people aged 5-16 years old who are eligible for benefit assessed Free School Meals (FSM) are able to access free activities and healthy meals throughout the three main school holidays.

We are working with our partners to deliver a programme of face to face activities. They will include schools, local voluntary and community organisations and childcare providers.

Useful information

The Fuelled  Holiday Programme will give your child/children access to fun and free holiday club activities and online resources to engage with during the holidays.

All activities will include a healthy hot meal and a range of physical activities.

You will receive information on how to book onto activities when the sessions go live.

The activities will take place in the summer holidays.

You will receive an email with confirmation of your child/children’s booking.

If you have any queries and want to get in touch with the provider, please use the contact number that was on the booking page.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 allows us to hold information about children and families as part of our duty to support families.

However, the law says we must:

  • only hold information that we need for the delivery of the programme
  • only use the information for that reason
  • make sure the information we hold is accurate
  • keep the information only for as long as it is needed
  • make sure we only use the information lawfully and not breach your rights as the owner of this information
  • keep the information secure at all times.

We will need to share information about your child with the organisation who are providing the activities your child is booking to ensure that they can effectively deliver their activities as part of the programme.

Please read our Fuelled privacy statement.

Please contact the provider or email fuelled@northlincs.gov.uk if your child is unable to attend one of the activities and we will notify the provider.

All activities are aiming to be inclusive of your child needs. There are however a couple of activities that are specific to children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). If this is the case than this will be clearly stated. Each activity provides a description of what the activity will consist off and what your child can expect. Please book your child onto activities that you feel will meet their interest and ability.

The activity provider may be in touch with you to further understand your child’s need and discuss any additional support your child may need to engage in the activity they booked onto. If you wish to discuss your child’s needs with the provider then you can also contact them directly. All providers’ details can be accessed on the booking site.

We suggest you look at the Fuelled site first as some of the activities are available to everyone and others may have a charge which includes the price of food. Please also visit the activities for families webpage for other activities that are not part of the Fuelled project.

Your child will qualify if all these statements apply:

  • your child is eligible for benefit assessed free school meals (FSM)
  • you live in North Lincolnshire
  • your child is aged between 5 and 16 years.
