Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme

Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)

The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) provides healthy food and enriching activities to children and young people, with free places available for those on free school meals. It’s available during the Summer, Easter and Christmas school holidays as well as during half-term holidays.


School holidays can be a particularly difficult time for some families. This free holiday club programme helps children to enjoy active and healthy school holidays, where they can experience new activities, meet friends and eat healthy meals.

Bookings for HAF Worcestershire Easter are now open! HAF is a Department for Education funded programme run by Worcestershire County Council, which provides free holiday activities and food for children aged 5-16 in receipt of benefits-related free school meals. 


There is an exciting range of activities this Easter, with something for everyone - including swimming, horse riding, dance and performing arts, martial arts and more! Lunch and/or snacks are included.


Each child or young person will get 4 credits for Easter. One credit can book one activity session via the booking site.


To book activities, parents will need to be registered and approved as FSM on the new website (even if they were previously registered on the old website).


If you have children eligible for HAF, please register here


When your children have been approved, you can log in and book here
