Barnet Council and Young Barnet Foundation are due to open applications for Barnet Active Creative and Engaging (BACE) Holidays for 2024 in the coming weeks.

The scheme supports children and young people in reception through to year 11 who receive benefit-related Free School Meals in the borough of Barnet. 

BACE Holidays provide engaging and healthy activities with an emphasis on physical, emotional, and nutritional wellbeing during the school holidays. Activities may include football, cricket, arts and crafts, performing arts and lots more.

Parents who think their children might like to attend and who currently qualify should look out for spring 2024 updates and apply at https://barnetyouth.uk/BACE-Holidays.

Benefit-related free school meals (FSM) are available to pupils if their parents are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, and have a claim verified by their school or local authority.
