About your mentors
Active Tameside
Actively feeding the minds of tomorrow
Fuel 4 Fun – Holiday Activity & Food Fund (HAF) has been developed through the department of education (DFE) to engage and deliver interventions to a large cohort of young people aged 6 years up to 16 (Currently in School year 11), and up to 18 years for people with Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). There are over 10,000 young people in Tameside who receive benefit related free school meals, the main aim of this programme is to engage with these young people over the school holiday period to offer FREE holiday activities supported with interventions, and to provide a nutritious lunch to all. This will also be underpinned by offering training and leadership opportunities to help develop pathways for lifelong learning and development. Tameside MBC/Active Tameside are responsible for the coordination of the programme and are continuously looking to develop partnerships with community sports clubs, Physical activity/ faith groups and schools with the main purpose being that the partner organisation will deliver holiday programmes independently on behalf of Fuel 4 Fun, and its brand.
