Half-term holiday support is available

Half-term holiday support is available for children and young people from the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme.

The programme is funded by the Department for Education, and includes healthy food and enriching activities for children and young people from reception to Y11 who are in receipt of benefits-related free school meals.

What activities are available?

The activities have started, but there are still places available.

The Holiday Activities and Food programme brochure provides information on how to book, as well as details of the HAF token, which allows children and families to select from a range of materials to help them join the Easter Holiday activities.

You can also visit HAF on  www.ealingfamiliesdirectory.org.uk where further activity, ideas and resources can be found.

You can still receive free school meals

Please note the HAF Programme is separate to the COVID-19 Winter Grant Scheme and children and young people who are in receipt of benefits -related free school meals will still receive their free school meal voucher for the Easter holidays.
