Holiday Activity Fund 2022 in manchester

In Manchester, we recognise that school holidays for some families can be a challenging time. The pressure of reduced incomes and increased costs such as food and childcare can feel hard during these times, and for some children and young people this creates gaps in accessing organised holiday activity.

This can result in ‘unhealthy holidays’ - increased holiday hunger, limited access to nutritious and healthy meals alongside limited access to physical and fun activities. All of which can contribute to the likelihood of experiencing social isolation. Sadly, these issues have also been further exasperated by the Covid-19 pandemic.  

 
In response to this, the Department of Education (DfE) has provided local authorities with Holiday Activity Funding (HAF) to develop a free activity and food programme during the holidays. This means we are able to work with clubs and organisations across the city to develop a food and activity programme to respond to the above, which we know will make a positive impact on the children and young people of Manchester.  
 
Please take a look at the drop down tabs below for information concerning the Holiday Activity Fund application process.

MANCHESTER ART GALLERY & THE HOLIDAY ACTIVITY FUND

Manchester Art Gallery (MAG) is preparing to play a role in the summer holiday period to contribute to the goals of the Holiday Activity Fund, namely to provide a nutritious meal to the city’s school children who are eligible for Free School Meals. MAG has experience of delivering fun and creative activities at the gallery, Platt Hall and at a variety of other settings. We have a team of freelance artists and creative practitioners who can work up a range of different activities. We are eager to work in partnership with other providers to deliver a balanced programme and nutritious meal that will be attractive to young people and their parents.
 
WHAT CAN WE DO? With 20 years experience of working with children, families, schools and young people, we’ve built up a panel of freelancers who have developed their practice with MAG or on the gallery’s behalf. These creative individuals have delivered activities that include print-making, photography, portraiture, art in nature, and various crafts. We can focus on any age group, but are best skilled working with similarly aged groups.

OPTIONS? For the summer of 2022, we can:
- Deliver sessions at a partner’s venue, supplying that materials and lead artists
- Deliver sessions (morning or afternoon) at MAG that partners can send groups too. We can include the nutritious meal as part of this option
- Deliver sessions at Platt Hall and Platt Fields, in partnership with another local provider.
