The Department for Education (DfE) is providing funding to local authorities to coordinate a programme that provides healthy food and enriching activities to eligible children during the 2023 Spring, Summer and Winter school holidays. This is known as the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme.

Places will be available at a range of holiday club providers, and offer eligible children the opportunity to attend sessions four hours per day for four days over the Spring, four days per week for four weeks over the Summer and for four days over the Winter school holidays.

Children who take up a place at a free holiday club

  • eat more healthily over the school holidays, with a meal provided at each session
  • be more active, by being involved in physical activities and a range of engaging and enriching activities to develop resilience, character and wellbeing
  • be safe and not socially isolated over holiday periods
  • most importantly, have fun with friends

The programme will grow over the summer so a wider offer is available to families to access during this holiday period.
