Summer Holiday 2021 activities for Glasgow Families
Glasgow City Council's Summer Holiday 2021 Children's Holiday Food Programme is being supplemented by the 'Get Into Summer' programme funded by the Scottish Government.
The school summer holidays are nearly here and it has never been easier to find out what free activities for children and young people are available in your local community.
There's something on offer for everyone, just click on the interactive map to see what activities you can book your child into - with free food provided too thanks to our community and third sector providers.
Each link has contact details for the organisation delivering the programme in your area and all you need to do is get in touch with them to find out more.
Please note: the activities under the 'Education Services' heading are only for families whose children attend that school. Those families can take part in the school programmes and should contact their school direct for more information.
A list of organisations and their delivery locations for the Summer Holiday 2021 programme can be found at the following link CHFP&EducationServicesSummer2021Venues [155kb].
Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 restrictions, some organisations may not have been able to confirm venues they initially hoped to use. We advise that parents/carers contact organisations directly as they will be able to give the most accurate updates on their individual programmes. Similarly, they will also be able to advise about spaces or waiting lists. We appreciate this is not ideal, but organisations have had to be flexible in their approach this year, with both venues and capacity subject to change, which is why we ask that you contact them directly in the first instance.
Aim of the Fund
The Fund is informed by the Glasgow City Council Strategic Plan and enables community organisations to provide nutritious food to children/young people using their services during school holiday periods. The Fund is for children/young people 0-18 years of age.
*The Children's Holiday Food programme is a grant for voluntary sector organisations. Information on School meals and clothing grants can be found on the website here: www.glasgow.gov.uk/schoolsandlearning
