A new summer programme of children’s activities known as ‘SNAP’ – Sport-Nutrition-Activity-Play – has launched in Knowsley.
Linked to the national ‘Feeding Britain’ network Knowsley SNAP is a programme of summer fun for 2018, supported by funding from the Department for Education delivered in collaboration with Knowsley Council’s Children’s Centres and School Meals services.
Knowsley SNAP funding is supporting established and fledgling local voluntary, faith and community groups across the borough to deliver holiday provision which includes a nutritious meal, with the aim of developing the offer so it’s bigger and better in the future.
SNAP will have a beneficial effect on children’s health, physical activity levels, educational progress and social skills as well as helping families who struggle to cover the additional food costs over the six weeks holidays.
It will prove again that by working collaboratively in ways that are cooperative and positive, Knowsley is ‘Better Together’.
All SNAP activities are open-access for families, but they particularly welcome children who would benefit most from such opportunities – for example those children who would normally be in receipt of free school meals.
Some sessions have limited spaces and these will require pre-booking. The Knowsley SNAP timetable has all the details plus contact information for each session.
