HAF Information for providers

Free holiday fun and food in Buckinghamshire

About the Buckinghamshire HAF Programme

Funded by the Department for Education, the aim of the HAF programme is to offer free holiday clubs or activity places over the school holidays to children who receive benefits-related free school meals.

We are aiming to fund a diverse range of enriching, fun and physical activities and food which are attractive and engaging for all ages and abilities of children and young people.

The offer will include a daily healthy hot meal for children attending each holiday session.
