elcome to Summer in the City, our round-up of events and activities for children and young people this summer.

This year Hammersmith & Fulham Council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council will combine some children’s services to reduce costs and maintain quality. To mark the start of this new way of working, the three councils have come together to produce a joint summer listings booklet. This will bring you a wider selection of activities to choose from wherever you live. Young people from across the three boroughs have even helped to create the design. There’s something for all ages, abilities and interests from the opening of a new Parkour Park to Play Day and

Cllr Nickie Aiken Cabinet Member for Children’s Services Westminster City Council

multimedia courses to survival school. There’s lots of joint events too such as Summer of Dance, the Youth Games and this year’s national reading challenge, Circus Stars. Activities are listed in date order under arts and culture, family events, libraries, play, sport and leisure, youth and summer academy. Each listing will show if the activity is based in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea or Westminster but if it’s not in your borough, don’t let that stop you from trying it out. Most activities are open to everyone, giving you the chance to try out new things, visit new places and meet new people. All activities are free or low cost and if you live in Westminster, make sure you show your ResCard for even more discounts in your borough. We hope this booklet helps you to enjoy a healthy and active summer packed full of new activities to try out.

The Way Ahead Register is a confidential record of information about children with special needs and disabilities living in Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham and Kensington and Chelsea. Its purpose is to assist service planning to meet the needs of these children and their families. Children’s names are added to the register at their parent’s request, and in return parents can receive information about services available in their area.

If you would like to register, or to find out if you are eligible to register, please contact your local Child Development Service:

All children who are on the Way Ahead Register are entitled to this new card. The card will help families gain understanding and recognition that your child has a special need or disability. The card may also assist you in obtaining discounts where concessions are offered. The use of this card is completely voluntary. It is the decision of parents and/or as to whether the card is of use to you or your child either now or in the future.
