This Summer, Islington Council is offering children from low income families the opportunity to get a free healthy lunch every day throughout the school holidays, while enjoying fun activities with their friends. They will be looked after by experienced play workers.
If your child is aged 6-12 (year 1 to year 7) and you are on benefits or a low income (your household income is less than £16,190 per year) your child/ren will qualify.
