About our holiday activities and food programme

Our holiday activities and food (HAF) programme provides fun, free activities for children and young people aged five and upwards during the easter, summer and Christmas school holidays. The programme is for children eligible for benefit related free school meals, which is a requirement from the Department for Education which funds the programme.

There's always a range of activities on offer, including sports and games sessions, craft and creative activities and fun days out. Healthy snacks and lunch are also provided to all children and young people attending face-to-face activities.

Our sessions are inclusive, so are suitable for children with special education needs and disabilities (SEND).
