Summer programme 2020

One of the highlights of our Communities team’s calendar is the summer programme. Every year children, young people and families come together from across our neighbourhoods, to take part in a range of activities from art classes, sports activities, music and dance events.

How will the programme be delivered this year?

Due to Covid-19, we can’t deliver these activities in the same way as we normally would. That doesn’t mean, we haven’t got a range of opportunities for you and your families to participate in this year.

We’re working closely with our existing community partners, and some new ones, to deliver some exciting virtual projects, activity packs and more.

What’s on this year

Additional support

The summer programme 2020 isn’t just about activities and events to keep the kids busy during the holidays. Our digital inclusion team can support families that need help to get online, and our dedicated family wellbeing service is available for those who need some extra assistance too.

Please contact wellbeingreferrals@chg.org.uk if you would like to receive further digital or wellbeing support.

You can also read our tips to keep your children safe online for lots of ideas and resources on how everyone can use the internet safely.

As part of our commitment with the Housing Association Youth Network (HAYN); we’ve put together some useful links to support services for young people who may be able to help, if you need some support during the summer break.
