Free Christmas Activity Camps for Children and Young People Eligible for Free School Meals


If your child or young person is eligible for benefits related free school meals in Wiltshire, they are eligible to attend the free Christmas holiday FUEL programme. FUEL is a free holiday activity and food project that offers children the opportunity to take part in a range of fun activities during school holiday periods in 2021. Children will also be provided with a nutritious meal each day.
Two FUEL activity camps specifically for children with SEND will take place in Corsham and Salisbury.

Corsham: Monday 20th December and Tuesday 21st December at Springfield Community Campus, Corsham
Salisbury: Wednesday 22nd December and Thursday 23rd December at Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre, Salisbury

All sessions run from 10am to 2pm.
You can sign up to both days or just the day you want. If you have any further queries relating to the FUEL camps for children with SEND, please email: fuelprogramme@wiltshire.gov.uk

There are additional FUEL Christmas camps which will run in 10 locations across Wiltshire, which are for all eligible children, not specifically those with SEND. These camps will take place in Amesbury, Calne, Chippenham, Devizes, Melksham, Royal Wootton Bassett, Salisbury, Trowbridge, Warminster and Westbury. The camps will run for four hours a day (10am to 2pm) between 20th December to 23rd December. Please note, a limited number of camps will not be open for all four days due to venue availability. If you have any further queries relating to the FUEL camps for all eligible children, please email: hafcentral@bydesign-group.co.uk

Please note, the FUEL programme is only available to eligible children attending primary, secondary or special schools and is not open to pre-school children. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so please sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. If you have multiple children, you will need to register each one separately. If you require any support with completing this form, please speak to your school. If your child or young person is eligible, please sign up by completing a registration form using this link: [FUEL].

You must register no later than noon on Friday 26th November 2021 to take part in a FUEL Christmas camp.
