Holiday Activities and Food Programme

What is HAF?

The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme was designed to support children during the school holidays to eat more healthily, be more active and have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition. In Sefton we are working with a range of schools, charities, community organisations and sports providers to provide free holiday provision.

The programme runs for 1 week during the Easter and Christmas holidays and for 4 weeks during the summer and includes a healthy meal each day. 

Who the programme is for?

To get a free place of the HAF Programme young people need to aged 5-16 years (or 4-year-olds if in reception) and eligible for and receiving benefit related free school meals.
