Gosport Summer Passport is a well-established initiative organised by Gosport Community Safety Partnership which began in 2008. The scheme provides free, open access diversionary activities for young people of secondary school age living or attending school in the local area.
2021 Summer Passport
Following the Coronavirus pandemic, an amended version of the scheme was successfully delivered. Just under 600 young people signed up to the programme, with a variety of activities taking place onTuesdays and Thursdays from 27/07/21 - 19/08/21 at various locations across the Borough. Free bus travel was provided by First Bus and a number of activities were provided by local organisations including Lee on the Solent Sailing Club and Motiv8, along with Phoenix Driving School who co-ordinated free taster driving sessions.
Let's Get Connected
This year's Summer Passport scheme was part funded by Hampshire County Council's Holidays and Food programme grant as part of a wider approach to co-ordinated holiday provision. The Let's Get Connected project brought together a number of organisations who provided activities for young people across the Borough during the summer holidays and was co-ordinated by Gosport's Local Children's Partnership. This pilot is currently being evaluated and it is hoped that similar provision can be repeated in future.
