Summer Fun Lancashire Children's Trust recognises the many positive outcomes that children and young people can achieve through accessing activities and learning during the school holidays. The coordination of district programmes allows us to pull together a range of existing provision during holiday periods, provided through partners such as schools, district councils, children's centres, leisure centres and community groups. This provides parents with a single point of information in planning summer holiday activities for their children. For lastest Trust guidance on Lancashire's Continuum of Need visit: Lancashire Children's Trust August e-bulletin (July's bulletins are available to download below).


Make your Mark 2016 Make Your Mark is the UK’s largest youth consultation of young people from 11-18, please could you support Lancashire's Members of Youth Parliament by getting the message out to organisations and young people in Schools, youth groups etc. Last year Lancashire MYP's managed to get the highest return from any UK constituency, due partly to the support of all who work with young people.
