FREE Activities and Food this Summer Holiday

This summer holiday we’re running FREE Activities and Food Holiday Camps throughout Birmingham and Sandwell. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and take part in multi-sports sessions (not just football!).

School holidays can be a particularly challenging time for some families who may have limited access to activities, food or learning opportunities. With funding secured through the Department for Education, we have created a programme of activities for eligible families during the Summer 2021 holidays.

here to make this summer fun!

Turn up, play and enjoy!

Sport 4 Life UK holiday camps are a great way to stay active and meet new people. Activities include football, rounders, cricket, baseball, dodgeball, golf, archery, circuit training, tennis, volleyball and many more!

Funded by the Department for Education

The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) has been supporting children and families in the school holidays since 2018. The programme was significantly expanded in light of the coronavirus pandemic primary thanks to Marcus Rashford MBE.

The programme helps ensure that children have access to healthy food and enriching activities throughout the school holidays.

As the leading sport for employment charity in the West Midlands, we are privileged to be given the opportunity to work with various local authorities and HAF initiatives, such as Bring it on Brum, Sandwell Council, and Sport Birmingham to provide free activities and food during the summer holiday.
