We have asked families registering on the Holiday Activity & Food Programme to give us permission to contact you, regarding evaluation of the programme. The evaluation is a stipulation of the grant funding from the Department for Education, and hearing from families and participants would help add to the evaluation forms submitted by us to the Department for Education and Lancashire County Council who are leading the evaluation of the programme. We will only contact you if you have given us permission to do so.
