Reducing the Cost of the School Holidays - Helping Children and Families
Tue 28 March 2017, 09:30 – 12:30 BST
While many children eagerly anticipate the school holidays, families on low incomes face additional financial pressures over the holiday period. They can find it challenging to feed the family, occupy children on a tight budget and source appropriate childcare.
At this event, John Dickie from CPAG will discuss the 'Cost of the School Holidays' study, which explored ways in which holiday provision could better meet the needs of families living in poverty. Participants will also hear from Children in Scotland and PEEK Project about ways of putting the research into practice.
The event aims to give schools and third sector organisations ideas they could put into practice, and encourage partnership working.
