Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme

Sign up for your free place (for qualifying children) at our Holiday Activities and Food Schemes - and try a range of fun activities and enjoy tasty meals

Information for parents and carers

HAF provides support to families throughout the school holiday period.

Important: The HAF programme funding is primarily for school aged children from reception to year 11 (inclusive) who receive benefits-related free school meals (FSM).

Benefits-related FSMs are available to pupils if their parents are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits. Click on the links for information for Hampshire before booking your child onto a free place. Parents and carers can find out more using the links below.
