Helping Your Community 

We are working with the government’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) to support pupils in disavantaged areas across the UK.  

Find out how your school can get involved. 

What is the HAF scheme? 

The HAF programme is a grant-based scheme created by the government to support pupils in the UK. This scheme has been designed to extend the support provided for children who are eligible for and receive benefits-related free school meals beyond term time provision. Through this scheme we are able to offer free holiday club places for pupils, providing them with 8 hours of enriching and engaging activities and a nutritious lunch option.

Age Range : 5 – 11 years old 

You can find full details of the HAF programme here.
