Barking & Dagenham’s Easter Holiday Activity & Food Programme

March 15th 2022

The Easter holidays are fast-approaching! We know the school holidays can be challenging for some families because of increased costs (like food and childcare). And it can be tricky keeping children occupied! But there’s plenty for them to do in Barking and Dagenham this Easter.

If your child is eligible for free school meals, you can get them involved in the Holiday Activities and Food Programme. Children and young people aged 5 to 16 can choose from a range of free exciting activities with healthy meals included. Find out more about the opportunities on offer here.

School’s Out, Get Active is a programme that offers free and affordable activities for 5 to 17-year-olds. Head to Barking and Dagenham Council’s website to read more about the programme and other ways to keep your child healthy and active this Easter.

And the borough’s libraries and children’s centres offer a range of activities for the whole family. From arts and crafts to salsa and bingo, there really is something for everyone! Read more here.
