As the cost-of-living crisis continues, it means increasingly tough times for children and their families. People describe raising a family in the current climate as like ‘‘walking a tightrope’’.

The summer holidays should be a time for children to look forward to, to have fun, freedom and time with friends.

We believe every child should have the opportunity to play during the summer months and go back to, or start school and nursery equipped and ready to learn.

Summer of Play provides an opportunity to work with a wide range of partners to ensure children and their families are supported throughout the summer holidays. It allows us to dial up our existing calls on governments to take action to support families.

Save the Children have secured £269,000 from Amazon, plus the offer of gift in kind donations to take this work forward.  Within this, we have very kindly been gifted £10 book tokens from National Book Tokens. These can be redeemed online/in some bookshops.

If you are interested in receiving some of these book tokens, please get in touch with
