Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) 2022
The HAF programme, funded by the Department for Education, offers children the chance to participate in free holiday provision, including healthy food and enriching activities coordinated by the local authority.
The HAF programme is open to school-aged children (reception to year 11) who receive benefits-related free school meals. Through our programme of healthy food and fun activities, children and young people can develop new skills, take part in creative and physical activities, learn about food and cooking, and enjoy free nutritious meals each day.
This summer our HAF programme in Hillingdon will be offering eligible children the chance to participate in up to four weeks of free activities - maximum of 4 days per week/16 across the summer. We have over 5000 places on weeklong programmes being delivered across the Borough, working with over 20 different providers. Activities include sports programmes, life skills, creative arts, outdoor adventure activities and multi-activity summer camps.
Programmes are delivered across the whole borough utilising schools, leisure centres, outdoor spaces and other community venues to bring the activities to the local communities of eligible children.
