Holiday Activities and Food


If your child is eligible for a free place on our winter Holiday Activities and Food programme, they will receive a letter from their school. This letter will contain a unique code which you will need to register your child onto the activities. You can book activities and register from 7pm on 29 November 2021.

How to register

First, you will need to book a place on the activities that your child wishes to attend. You can book on as many activities as you like, adding them to your basket. When you checkout, you will be asked to register with a HAF registration code, which is at the top of the letter given out by your child's school.  

Season’s Greetings!

We hope you are looking forward to the Winter HAF programme, and as we are almost ready to launch you will need to book directly with the Provider.  You can view the Winter HAF timetable but will not be able to use the system to book a place.

Book now


The Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) is a central government initiative that requires all Local Authorities to deliver a programme of inclusive activities including a hot meal over the school holidays for children aged 5 – 16 years. It is free to those who receive benefit related school meals.

We have teamed up with local organisations to develop a timetable of enriching activities where children will get the opportunity to try new things, work on arts and crafts, cookery and sport as well as receive a hot meal wherever possible.

The Department for Education has provided funding for this initiative.
