Getting started: Becoming a Big Norfolk Holiday Fun provider

We are inviting activity providers from across Norfolk to become Big Norfolk Holiday Fun providers.

Big Norfolk Holiday Fun aims to provide positive experience for children and young people across Norfolk. They’ll be given the opportunity to try something new, and meet new people, whilst being given an incentive to get out and about during the holidays.

If you haven’t done so already, make sure you fill in the Expression of Interest form to become a provider.

Once you have been approved as a provider, you can download our Big Norfolk Holiday Fun provider pack.

Register on the Every Move activity finder

Every Move is our bespoke activity finder for Norfolk. All Big Norfolk Holiday Fun providers will need to sign up to this and list their activities through there.

We also highly recommend you also make use of our booking and payment system which is built into Every Move. This will make things simpler for both you and those signing up to your activities.

The below video will take you through the entire registration journey, and will show you how to get started with listing your activities.

You can also download the following guide with instructions, and the list of FAQs we have pulled together from working closely with existing providers.

Big Norfolk Holiday Fun Courses and Resources

We offer courses to Big Norfolk Holiday Fun providers to broaden their knowledge and understanding of working with children and young people. In turn, we hope to boost their confidence in providing suitable, safe, and successful events for young people in the future.

Browse the resources below, and book onto any training courses you feel might help you.

Accessibility & diversity in your activities

It is important that your sessions are accessible for all children – regardless of physical or learning disability, race or gender.

The accessibility and diversity training will be held online. This workshop places a focus on inclusion and catering to all requirements. These include SEN requirements.

Take a look at these for more help:

Embedding nutritional education into your offer

Food plays a major role in the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme. It provides an opportunity to learn about food and nutrition, and also for young people to build an appreciation of healthy food.

Could you use these in your sessions?

Embedding physical activity into your session

Children should be physically active for 60 minutes a day. By including physical activity into your sessions, this is an easy and fun way for children to get moving.

Safeguarding and risk management

Children’s safety is paramount and should be a primary consideration when planning activities or events.

This means knowing your safeguarding responsibilities and also having an updated risk assessment in place.

The Safeguarding workshop is split across two dates. We ask that you attend both dates.

We will be updating this knowledge hub with more guides shortly.
