School Holiday Clubs Survey 2017

05 September 2017

The APPG on Hunger and the Healthy Living Lab undertook a study of holiday hunger clubs during the summer 2017.

The results found:

  • A rise in the number of organisations delivering holiday clubs since 2015 with a sharp rise in the establishment of new holiday clubs in 2017.
  • The regions of the UK with the greatest number of responses to the survey are the North East of England, London and Scotland.
  • Over two thirds of the organisations surveyed do not charge for their holiday club provision.
  • The majority of organisations provide food and a range of activities for children.
  • Voluntary or community based groups and church or faith based groups together make up over half of all holiday club providers.
  • The majority of organisations rely on both paid and volunteer staff and partner with other organisations or agencies to deliver this provision.
  • Holiday clubs are available to children of all ages but organisations predominantly focus their provision on primary school aged children (5-11 year olds).
