Summer has arrived!
After a difficult year, young people can finally look forward to a summer full of fun and creativity.
Over the six-week summer holiday, activities and events will be taking place across Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea for five to 16 year olds, as part of the Department of Education’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme.
The programme includes summer camps, sports, arts, cooking, mentoring and leadership, a wide range of activities for children and young people with SEND, as well as nutritional information for families.
Free places and food will be provided for those eligible for free school meals however there’s plenty of room for all young people to get involved.
To see what’s on offer and register your child for summer fun, visit the Our City website. Keep checking back as new activities are being added daily!
You can also find activities near you both during term time and in the school holidays with the handy map tool.
