– Game On –

A healthy holiday help

Game On 2020 is the ninth year of a Teesside network of school holiday projects.

Despite the problems we face as a region, we are surrounded by opportunites for better. For affordable activities. Healthy food. Positive chances. For all our young people!

As we’re all very aware, Covid-19 has changed the landscape for us all.

Unlike previous years, very few face-to-face sessions will be happenning this summer. Most projects are assessing what they are able to offer. Some will have packs they can deliver, or ideas for free trips you can still go on in and around Teesside. Street work in communities will be restarting for the summer. Some groups may also be able to help out with emergency food parcels. Contact your local youth group to see how they’re working this summer.

#GameOn is a partnership of grass-roots organisations from all sorts of backgrounds. Following on from the successes of hope4summer, this is a space for communities to make sure that the school holidays are the best they can be for everyone. That means affordable activities within reach, healthy food as an option and crowd-sourced ideas to help make the holidays work for families across Teesside. Below you’ll find a map of the groups in our network and a week-by-week guide for their summer activities. And there’s more out there! Other groups, networks, great ideas under our noses.

┬áThe following map is a snapshot of 2019 so far. We’ll try and update details on 2020 support throughout the summer but it will be dramatically different to previous years.
Details can be quite fluid. If you want to know what’s going on in your area, please contact us at ajf.freestyle@gmail.com and keep an eye on www.facebook.com/hope4boro/


We are here to shout most about this grassroot network but there are loads of amazing things to do in Teesside this summer. Check in on the Councils, National Parks and other networks you know about. We asked for more ideas for families and this is what people came up with in the first week…
