School Summer Holiday Schemes:

Summer of fun for young people in Salford

Each year we support our partners across the city in putting together a programme of school holiday activity and support. 

Schools and organisations across Salford have come together to offer an action-packed range of fun activities, and food, for four to 16-year-olds this summer.

The programme will run across the whole city, and we are delighted to be offering a special advice service to support this work. We can help with advice about school uniforms, food over the holidays – through joining one of Salford’s twelve community food clubs, as well as a benefits check for you and your family.

The activities, which range from baking and cookery to arts, crafts, sports and music will run across Salford from Monday 26 July to Thursday 19 August.

The initiative is aimed to help keep young people in safe, fun and interactive environments during the long summer holidays.

Councillor Sharmina August, Lead Member for Inclusive Economy, Anti-Poverty and Equalities at Salford City Council said: “The summer holidays are a very exciting time for young people and we want them to have a great time and be safe.

“Many families do not have access to lots of spare money and it can be very expensive to occupy youngsters during the weeks they are off school. So we have made it that most of the activities in this initiative be absolutely free. I’d like to thank all partners for making this possible and coming together to put on this fantastic list of activities.

“Our young people can look forward to time off school knowing they can have some fun days out, take part in new experiences and make new friends.”

Many activities will be free but, if there is a small charge, the money will be used to help less fortunate Salford children and young people.
