Free places for children at Christmas holiday schemes in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire County Council has ongoing funding from the Department for Education to enable families, who receive free school meals due to the benefits they receive, to book free places at a local holiday scheme this Christmas. An eligible child will be entitled to up to 16 hours for free at a participating holiday scheme. A nutritious meal is also provided as part of the programme and children and young people will have much needed social contact and opportunities to engage in physical activity.
