We do not collect this information, but our Holiday Activities and Food programme has supported children from disadvantaged families over the last 2 summers.

In 2018, we provided £2 million funding that reached over 18,000 pupils.

This year, we more than quadrupled our funding, so that even more disadvantaged children benefitted from healthy food and enriching activities.
