As the school term draws to a close, many of us will be thinking of ways to keep the children entertained, well-fed and active this half-term. With the cost of living crisis tightening budgets, we’ve scoured the internet to curate a list of places where kids can eat for free or as little as £1 over the break, making family outings more affordable.

Thanks to generous funding from our supporters, HideOut Youth Zone is able to offer our members a FREE hot meal during every session. Our Holiday Clubs, which run during school holidays are action-packed and offer engaging, fun and educational programmes aimed at young people aged 8-12.

We have LIMITED paid slots available for the May Holiday Club, details for which can be found in the link below. Please note funded places are available for our Summer Holiday Clubs, if you think you are eligible for this please contact our Holiday Club Coordinator here.
