Enriching young people's lives

Christmas 2021 Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Fund is now open!

After the success of the summer programme, where more children than ever before took part in activities and received a lunch, we are hoping to build on this to provide experiences and food once again for the children of our borough.

The HAF programme offers a wide range of support for families and goes well beyond the delivery of food and activities: it’s a point of contact for children and families during holiday periods that can be vital for them in accessing support and services and that holiday provision is most effective when it is delivered face to face.

HAF funding is aimed at those children in receipt of free school meals (FSM) aged between 5- 16years and aims to provide stimulating, enriching activities, with a focus on healthy eating and lifestyle, and food provenance. This fund can provide up to 100% of costs and is accessible via an application form. Delivery should take place between Monday 20th December and Friday 31st December.

The closing date for all applications is Monday 18th October 5.00pm and we will not be able to consider any late submissions.

Please find below the application forms and guidance notes:
