HAF is a free and exciting holiday programme for children and young people aged 5 to 16 who are eligible for benefit related free school meals. The programme runs over the Easter (1 week), summer(4 weeks) and Christmas(1 week) school holidays and is funded by the Department for Education (DfE).

We are proud to work with a variety of providers to develop an exciting and enriching programme of activities. Our providers include schools, local voluntary and community groups, childcare providers and local businesses.

You can register throughout the year for the HAF progamme. Each eligible child should have received a letter with a unique code and information about how to register. To register each child you will need their unique code (at the top of the letter). If you haven't had a letter, you can email us.
