Free summer activities for young people in West Suffolk

Close to 1000 young people will be able to take part in a free programme of activities this summer, designed to support West Suffolk families.

Parents and carers throughout West Suffolk may be eligible to benefit from a free holiday clubs programme for children and young people over the school summer break. The Government’s Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) will be available throughout the region this summer.

The free programme of activities, coordinated locally by West Suffolk Council, is targeted at those who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals. Most events will also have spaces which can be paid for by families who are not eligible for a free place. 

Activities include making camp-fires, preparing food, cooking, orientation, team building and archery with Abbeycroft Leisure. The adventure days will take place in Brandon, Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Mildenhall and Newmarket

Parents and carers who think their children and young people might benefit from free holiday clubs can book via an interactive map at Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme | Community Directory (
