Summer holiday food, activities and childcare programme: guidance for local authorities

Guidance for local authorities and commissioned partners to assist in the development of a programme of coordinated access to childcare, food, and activities during the 2022 school summer holidays.

4. Monitoring, Reporting and Evaluation

The £10 million funding is being paid to Local Authorities through the General Revenue Grant. Whilst this funding is not ring-fenced it is vital that the impact and learning of the programme be evidenced through proportionate reporting and evaluation mechanisms.

The Monitoring and Evaluation approach is currently in development, and is expected to be robust but realistic, combining both quantitative and qualitative analysis which will feed into a final Evaluation report (January 2023). Further information will be provided separately.

Scottish Government commissioned engagement with participating children and young people will also help to understand whether the programme met their needs and feedback will shape future delivery.
