About Get into Summer

Get into Summer is a Scottish Government-funded initiative to help children, young people and families have fun throughout the holiday period. 

The activities have all been planned to help children and young people who have been particularly affected by the pandemic to make the most of their summer and connect with others.

There are lots of activities on offer from council services, local clubs and communiy groups.

Activities may be funded for priority families to ensure that costs aren't a barrier to taking part.

Worried about costs?

Managing your money across the summer holiday period can be stressful.

Projects that receive funding to be part of the Get into Summer programme have also been asked to consider some of the hidden costs - such as food or transport - to make sure that there are no barriers to taking part. 

If you're worried about your finances more generally including benefits, council tax or council rent, or food costs this summer, we have lots of support available.
