Due to Covid-19, some settings/activities may need to close for short periods of time under advice from Public Health and therefore we ask that enquirers please check with an advertised service first to check if they are open at this time. We would recommend that you contact providers and face-to-face services, to see if there are any extra measures you will need to abide by if attending classes/sessions

NEW - MedwayGo - Medway’s programme offering free summer activities and camps for children on benefits-related free-school meals.

As part of our aspirations to become a child-friendly city, where children and young people are at the heart of everything we do, we are consulting with young people up to 25, to find out more about what it’s like to be young in Medway and understand their wants and needs.
Part of our approach is to encourage children and young people to take part in an online survey. The survey will run from 26 April to 23 May. We also hope to engage parents of younger children and those with physical or learning disabilities, which may make it harder for them to take part in an online survey.
We would like to ask you for your help to promote the short anonymous survey to your parents and carers.
You can find the survey here https://smartsurvey.co.uk/s/MedwayYourWay/
