Holiday, Activities & Food
With an accumulative total of 89,398 hours delivered across 36 days through the support of more than 100 varied organisations, the summer delivery of HAF 2021 has undoubtedly been a success. Through the unique and productive partnership between The Hubb Foundation and Stoke-on-Trent City council, a bespoke offering has materialised for the children in our city who need the help most. Furthermore, there has been consistent praise about the delivery model incorporated in Stoke-on-Trent.
ith more than 5,000 invitations to children across the city in summer 2021, the 'Transition' programme (funded by the Opportunity Area) supports children on their journey through their transition into secondary school. Operated directly through the high schools across Stoke-on-Trent and in partnership with feeder schools, The Hubb Foundation commissions and coordinates activity and enrichment providers to offer children a fun and engaging experience at their new school prior to term time.
Designed to support families over an eight week period on average, this project gives each family a slow cooker, utensils, and ingredients to make cost-effective meals (ranging from soups to casseroles). Providing over 35,000 meals in the last year, this project helps families to discover how they can prepare and cook hearty, healthy, and hot meals at home for the whole family.
In partnership with the Port Vale Foundation and Synectics Solutions, we helped to provide and deliver more than 350,000 meals to families during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through referrals from schools and local organisations, we ensured each family received the support they needed during this critical time.
Community Venue Upscaling
In addition to our holiday projects, we support community venues in making their organisations both compliant and sustainable. Through free training sessions to bid writing support, we look to upskill community based organisations to support them in supporting disadvantaged families in Stoke-on-Trent.
