School Holiday Support for Families

During the summer school holidays we can support people working in horticulture with childcare costs, including holiday activity clubs such as play schemes,  to allow people to continue working during the busy summer season. We can also help you with extra food costs over the summer break, while the children are not receiving free school meals, and help you access other sources of support depending on your situation.

During the school summer holidays we can provide your family with support towards:

Childcare costs (including holiday activity clubs e.g. play schemes)

Food costs incurred while the child/ren are not receiving free school meals


Applications for our ‘Stressfree School Holidays’ support programme are now closed.


If you and your family need support during term-time, please see our Back to School pages here.

Alternatively, if you or your family needs help urgently you can speak to one of our team on
0800 093 8543 or email services@perennial.org.uk .
