Ealing Council is gearing up for the summer holidays, when it will be delivering its Holiday Activity and Food Programme (HAF) to young people in the borough.
The HAF scheme is available to children and young people in receipt of benefits-related free school meals. There are also limited places available for vulnerable children and young people. HAF is a free holiday club with activities like sports and drama. Children who are attending are also given a midday meal as part of their day.
It will run from Monday, 1 to Friday, 26 August and is funded by the Department for Education. The same scheme was run locally this spring (as you can see in the video above).
Councillor Kamaljit Kaur Nagpal, the council’s cabinet member for a fairer start, said: “We are delighted to be delivering Ealing’s HAF programme this summer. Funding is available to provide free holiday provision, including a healthy meal and enriching activities, for children and young people in school from reception to year 11 who live in the borough of Ealing or attend an Ealing school and are in receipt of benefits-related free school meals.”
If you are aware of any families of children or young people who are in receipt of benefits-related free school meals, you should let them know about the council’s upcoming HAF programme and encourage them to book on to the summer HAF activities.
