'FUEL' programme to be delivered again this summer

Wiltshire Council will be delivering its Holiday Activity and Food (FUEL) programme again this summer. The programme provides eligible children with food and activities during the school holidays.

The FUEL programme is paid for by the Department for Education and will run for four weeks during the summer holidays from 1 August to 25 August. Eligible families will be able to sign up through their schools.

Over 700 young people took part in the FUEL programme during the summer holidays in 2021. Ten holiday activity camps took place in areas of the county where there is the greatest need. The camps were delivered in partnership with Learn By Design, Occasional Kitchen and Purely Nutrition.

The camps provided the opportunity for all participants to take part in a range of activities, including laser tag, team games, arts and crafts and Olympic activities. Participants also took part in nutritional workshops, including making healthy burgers and marshmallow bunnies. Over 3,720 hot meals were provided.

Two FUEL Easter camps for young people with special educational needs and/or a disability also took place at Springfield Community Campus in Corsham and at Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre in Salisbury. These sessions will be available again throughout August with activities such as dodgeball, dance, new age kurling, cricket and boccia.
