Holiday Activities and Food Programme Winter 2023

Children and young people who receive benefits related free school meals can take part in our free holiday activities and food (HAF) programme over the winter holiday. The programme sessions will include a variety of activities, such as art, sport and music and a healthy meal will be provided each day your child attends. This winter you can register your child for one free programme. Before you register, please consider the:

• location of the programme and how your child will get there

• days and the time of the programme

• age range of the programme



Registration closes on Tuesday 5 December 2023. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis following confirmation of free school meal eligibility.

The full HAF programme information, criteria and details of how to apply can be found at:
