HAF (Holiday, Activites and Food) 

FREE Holiday clubs for eligible children: What is HAF and how can it help me?

Find out more here


Since 2021 the government has funded a programme called HAF (Holiday, Activities and Food programme) across all areas of the country. Research has shown that the school holidays can be pressure points for some families. For some children this can lead to a holiday experience gap, with some children being:

  • less likely to access organised holiday activities

  • more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health

  • more likely to experience social isolation

In response to this research there are now a large number of holiday club providers who are offering HAF places to eligible children (from reception to year 11).

The aims of the programme are to ensure children:

  • eat healthily over the school holidays

  • are active during the school holidays

  • take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and well being

  • be safe and not to be socially isolated

  • have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition
