Become a Big Norfolk Holiday Fun provider
Big Norfolk Holiday Fun (BNHF) is a programme designed to help children and young people in Norfolk get active and have fun over the holidays. The programme is Norfolk’s response to the Holiday Activities and Food programme.
We recruit local activity providers to get involved, and make a difference to the lives of children who could benefit most. In return, you’ll receive funding for delivering activities over the school holidays.
The aim of BNHF is to encourage children to be more active over the holidays. It also plays a vital role in helping young people to understand the role physical activity and nutrition has on health.
This page is for new providers to sign up. If you’re an existing provider, visit the Provider Knowledge Hub.
Step one: What do I need to do to sign up?
The Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme is Norfolk’s biggest holiday programme. We’re inviting all activity providers across Norfolk to take part!
Activity providers across the county put on sessions to provide local children with enriching and engaging opportunities over the holidays.
In order to take part, we ask you meet the following criteria:
These sessions should be in person (i.e. not online) and should cater to children within the age range of 4-16.
Big Norfolk Holiday Fun operates all across Norfolk, not just Norwich. If you do not have a suitable venue, get in touch so we can put you in contact with a local school who may be able to help.
Successful applicants will be offered funding from the Holiday Activity and Food grant, in order to be able to provide free spaces for children who could benefit most.
We also highly encourage these providers to put on blended sessions, and offer regular paid spaces for other children who don’t receive means-tested free school meals.
If you meet all the above criteria, simply fill in the form below to sign up. We will then send you an application pack.
