Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme 2024

North Tyneside Council is seeking to fund local providers to deliver a high-quality programme of activity during the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays for children eligible for free school meals.

Providers may come from the public, private or voluntary and community sector.

The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme is for children who receive benefits-related free school meals. The aim is to make free places available to children eligible for free school meals for the equivalent of at least four hours a day, four days a week, six weeks a year.

Providers can access this funding to offer free places for children on free school meals alongside other fee-paying children. Where providers are charging a fee for attendance it is encouraged that this is offered at as low a cost as possible.

There are approximately 8,300 children eligible for income related free school meals in North Tyneside. North Tyneside Council hopes to offer an all-encompassing programme to benefit children, young people, and their families.

Easter 2024 – Closes 15 January
Summer 2024 – Closes 1 May
Christmas 2024 – Closes 1 September
