Holiday Activities and Food Programme


The Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) aims to support the wellbeing of children aged between 5 to 16 years focussing on physical and mental wellbeing by providing a variety of activities during school holidays. Local activity providers run face to face sessions that are FREE to children and young people aged 5 to 16 years and receiving benefits-related free school meals. There are also places available to families with low income – and to children and young people who may face social isolation without the support of HAF - these places are granted on an individual basis. Included in each session is a meal, this may be breakfast or lunch depending on the programme offered. The aims of Nottinghamshire Holiday Activities and Food programme:
  • to support children to eat healthily.
  • to support children to be active during school holidays
  • to support children in their understanding of health and nutrition
  • to support families to be engaged with local support services.
