Schools have opened their doors again, which means we have had to close ours! But we had an amazing time As part of the government’s expanded Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme, we are offering a number of free sessions for children and young people (between 5 and 16 years old), who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

Monday 16th - Thursday 19th August 2021 - Peer Press 

Over the course of a week, we will transform your young person into a Citizen Journalist. They will learn a different journalistic skill each day - including film, photography, podcasting and writing articles - and be guided in how to create content that amplifies their voices and helps them to articulate their experiences. A hot meal and healthy snacks will be provided each day. 

Sherwood Park Hall, Abbotts Rd, Mitcham, CR4 1JP  


If your child is eligible for benefits-related free school meals and you'd like them to attend one of our free sessions, please sign up below:
