Hello and welcome to the Essex ActivAte Partner Hub!

Here you will find all our important updates surrounding the upcoming Holiday Activity and Food programme, as we progress towards the summer holidays. If you are an organisation based in Thurrock and are looking to apply to run a summer club please scroll to the bottom of this page.


We understand that many organisations are already being approached by families keen to book spaces for the summer holidays! This is a testament to all of the hard work that has made previous clubs so fantastic! Whilst we are currently working with our booking system providers, EOLA, to create solutions for some of the issues that were raised during the pilot, we welcome you to start promoting your summer plans. This will both help to create a buzz around the summer HAF 2021 programme across Essex, and will also minimise the chances of families missing updates before clubs begin to get booked up!

As such we have updated our handy Marketing Toolkit ready for you to use! This toolkit contains a great deal of information about our audience, the HAF programme, communications and wording, branding guidelines, and creation of your own marketing materials. Plus you can download a flyer and social media assets – all of which are ready to post or can be customised.

Take a look at the Essex ActivAte Marketing Toolkit here!

We are currently working on a number of videos, comprising footage from previous clubs. Please do share our Easter Highlights video with families, plus we would love to see your own videos on social media, showing off all the amazing activities you have organised!


The summer holidays are fast approaching!

We are currently in the process of contacting all of the organisations who applied to be part of the summer programme. If you have not heard from us yet then you will do shortly. We are now no longer taking applications, unless you are a Thurrock based organisation looking to run clubs in that area.

We are so excited to be working in partnership with Thurrock Council so to collaborate on delivering Holiday clubs in the area! If you are interested in applying to be involved in our Summer Holiday Programme, first and foremost please read through our Guidance Information. Then head to one of the following links to apply:

We are also looking for volunteers to help support club delivery. If you know of anyone who may be interested in applying to volunteer at one of our clubs or with another element of delivery, please ask them to complete a volunteering form.
