School’s Out for the Summer! Advice & Activities for Parents During the School Holidays

Summer is here and parents can spend quality time with their children. For some, the summer holidays can be a stressful time as many experience financial pressures over the six-week period due to the extra childcare and food costs. 

According to the Work and Pensions Committee, families are at greater risk of poverty over the school holidays when benefits such as childcare and free school meals are stripped. To help combat this rising issue many charities offer financial aid to those struggling or even entering debt during this period.

Havering offers some great activities and events for children during the summer holidays that include sports, music, arts and craft, along with holiday schemes that can be subsidised for eligible parents.
