GLL and Active Cornwall are working together to offer children the opportunity to take part in the Time2Move Holiday Programme, a Government Funded Scheme.
The Government Scheme has been running since 2018, and provides Local Authorities with funds to deliver programmes of physical and enrichment activities, and food provision to those disadvantaged children within our communities. In an announcement in November 2020, the government extended the scheme across the country to run throughout the 2021 holiday periods.
For many the holiday periods can place many pressures on families, working parents, low income families, and with increased costs in trying to find care, affordable activity provision, and food provision these types of schemes can give stability and engagement for many children.
Activity programmes offered by many providers are open to ALL children aged 5 -16years, but ages ranges may vary dependant on the provider. These programmes will also support those families with greater needs, there will numbers of FREE places for children who are eligible for Free School Meals.
3 of our Cornwall Centres will be offering their facilities to support programmes of activities delivered by our partners Active Cornwall for children 5 – 12years; Bodmin Leisure Centre, Helston Leisure Centre and Launceston Leisure Centre will open their doors to the Time2Move Holiday Programme.
The activity days will be fun -packed and will include multi sports, FUNdamentals of movement and multi skills activities run by high quality approved coaches from Active Cornwall.
The centres will also include a 1 hour closed swimming session each day of activity for those children attending the programme.
