Holiday Childcare Hubs
Summer Activity Hubs 2021
Scottish Government is funding Inverclyde Council to deliver hubs with support from national organisation, Children in Scotland.
The hubs will provide a fun-filled summer for children and young people aged 5-18 years. The service is open to families who are in employment and places will be prioritised for young people receiving free school meals and clothing grants.
The holiday hubs will operate in Port Glasgow Community Campus and Clydeview Academy, from Monday 28th June until Friday 13th August 2021. The sessions will start from 8:45am – 4:15pm at both Port Glasgow Community Campus & Clydeview Academy in Gourock.
The hubs aim to support families, allowing parents and carers to continue work during the school holiday period. Free lunch will be provided for the children and young people.
Child Poverty legislation states that the focus of attention, while addressing child poverty, should be placed on families identified as most vulnerable. That is: families with younger parents; single parent households; larger families; and families with a disabled person in the household.
Inverclyde Council aims to improve life chances of all children, young people and families. This service will contribute to this aim allowing children and young people to engage in a wide variety of activities and meet new friends in a fun and safe environment.
The young people will have access to a variety of resources and activities such as; sports and physical activities, cooking and baking, creative arts and crafts, outdoor play and adventures & much more.
