Types of activities

There are three different types of activities you can choose from. The types are:

  • Daily Activities – These are typically four hours long and provide a range of different activities each day. Some sessions may be longer, some may be the same activity each time. You can book onto up to four daily activities each week and you can either book the same providers or mix and match between different providers.
  • Weekly Camps – These activities often have a theme running throughout and tend to run for four/five days each week. If you book your child/young person onto this then you must intend to attend every session of that week. This is for a number of reasons, it may be that you are putting a play together which will be performed on the last day or it may be a leadership course which you must attend every day in order to pass.
  • Family Workshops – These are sessions that for children to attend with a parent/carer. Children must be accompanied by an adult and the activities will be created to encourage families to have fun together.

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.

The booking portal allows you to edit your contact details and information about yourself or your child. If you are unable to do this then please email us at fuelled@northlincs.gov.uk and we will support you with this.

All activities are aimed to be inclusive of every child’s needs. There are however a couple of activities that are specific to children with SEND. If this is the case then they will be marked as SEND only or SEND inclusive on the booking portal. You can use the filters to filter to activities that have been highlighted this way. Each activity provides a description of what the activity will consist of and what your child can expect which will help you to determine whether the activity meets your child’s needs. 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.

Contact us to discuss any worries or if you feel that none of the activities are suitable for your child to take part in. We are working closely with our colleagues who coordinate short break provision for children with disabilities to explore alternative offers.

If you would like to contact us about this then please email fuelled@northlincs.gov.uk and we will be in touch.
