Support for Parents

Dudley Holiday Activities

They provide free school holiday activities and food for children aged 5 – 16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals and other vulnerable groups.


You can use this link to register your child and book fun and rewarding activities across the borough.

Keeping your child happy and fulfilled during the holidays can be a challenge; and we want to support parents and carers.

Funded by the Department of Education and hosted by Dudley Council, we work with local organisations to provide a variety of exciting activities and clubs for kids as well as providing a healthy meal or snack at each session they attend.

Sleep and Mealtime workshops

Would you like your child to sleep in their own bed?      Not call out?       Sleep longer?

Does your child have nightmares/terrors?  Is your child a picky eater?  Do they refuse to sit at a table or eat well?   Is your child aged 1-11 years?    Then these could be for you!
