FUEL - Providers

Expression of Interest to deliver the FUEL Programme for summer 2022

This summer, Achieving for Children are seeking to partner with providers to help deliver the FUEL programme. 

FUEL (Feed Ur Everyday lives) is the name our young people have given to the Department for Education's holiday activity and food programme (HAF) in Kingston and Richmond.

Kingston and Richmond Boroughs have around 6,500 children eligible for the programme, and after a successful first year of delivery, we are now ready to allocate grant funding for the summer 2022 holiday period. We will be in touch with further information about applying for the winter holiday period. Provision over summer should cover a period equivalent to 4 hours a day, for 4 days a week, over 4 weeks. The session delivery does not have to run consecutively and can be delivered split across the weeks.

We are keen to work with organisations across Kingston and Richmond who:

  • may be local groups, charities, holiday club providers and third sector organisation
  • can demonstrate the ability to offer food for children who will be eligible for Free School Meals
  • are working in partnership with holiday clubs e.g. schools
  • are already providing holiday provision within Kingston and Richmond.
  • would be able to provide targeted support for SEND provision where appropriate.
  • would be able to provide targeted support for cultural provision where appropriate

The government website has more information about the national programme (opens a new window) 

We now welcome applications for the programme, which will serve as expressions of interest from all potential providers. 

Please refer to the guidance notes, provider FAQ’s and application form template to help support you when preparing your application.

All applications must be made using the online form. The printable pdf form is supplied for use as a template to help you prepare your answers.

Online form to be used for all applications Summer 2022 FUEL application(opens a google form)


Closing date for applications 

The deadline for submitting an expression of interest is 23:59 on Friday 27th May. 

Prospective providers are also invited to submit bids of potential capital programmes they may require support with to help with delivery of their programme going forwards.

Achieving for Children will be allocating funding to be used to purchase equipment for the programme, for example, to improve the catering or sports equipment at an individual club. However, programme funding can only be used where this meets our criteria for capital expenditure.

Achieving for Children class capital expenditure on the FUEL programme as:

  • Individual, grouped, or bulked assets totalling £2,500. It is not possible to allocate capital funding for amounts less than £2,500.

Achieving for Children will request receipts for the items purchased to confirm the use of the capital funding, which you will need to submit along with your reporting information for the programme.

Applications for capital funding will be assessed alongside your application to deliver the programme over the summer. We particularly welcome funding applications where providers can show a use of the funding beyond the summer period, and that will enable future delivery of the FUEL programme.

This funding is not available to support general costs associated with the programme. Achieving for Children reserve the right to allocate funding as seen as best use of grant allocated funding by the Department of Education
