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.
Is my child eligible?
Any child aged 5-16 years (including 4-year-olds if in reception) who are eligible for and receiving benefit related free school meals can take part in the HAF programme.
