Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme 2021

Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme 2021



What is HAF and which children and young people can benefit from it?

The council has been awarded £2.8m for the HAF programme to cover Easter; Summer and Christmas 2021 holiday periods.  The focus of the programme is to give children access to healthy food and age-appropriate activities during the holiday periods.

The HAF funding is provided from the Department for Education and is targeted to children who are in receipt of benefits-related Free School Meals. However, to ensure all children can access food and activities we have used the additional Winter Grant funding that has been provided for Easter.  This means that any children who need access to food and activities over Easter can do so.

Grant applications

Grants will be available to organisations to provide healthy activities and food to primary and secondary school-aged children during the summer holidays. 

The grant application process for summer will open soon. 

Details will be available on this page.
