South Gloucestershire's Cost of Living Summer Holiday Social Media Toolkit

Many people are worried about the rising cost of living, and the summer holidays can be a particularly expensive time for families with children.

We are offering free holiday activities and food clubs for children aged 5 to 16 years who live in South Gloucestershire and who get benefits-related free school meals (not universal infant free school meals), funded by the Department for Education (DfE). More information can be found here:
