An opportunity for VCS organisations to find out more about plans for this year’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme.

Following the event, there will be an opportunity for VCS organisations to bid for funds to deliver holiday activities that enable eligible children and young people(those in receipt of free school meals) to:
  • eat more healthily over the school holidays
  • be more active during the school holidays
  • take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment
  • feel safe and not socially isolated
  • have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition
  • be more engaged with school and other local services
There will be a limited Easter offer, followed by a more substantial Summer and Christmas offer.
There may well be opportunities for organisations to develop partnership proposals that build on our combined assets to offer high-quality place-based activity programmes.
