What is the Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)
The Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) is a great way for your child to have fun during the school holidays. Eligible children will have the opportunity to make new friends, take part in a variety of exciting activities, and they will have a healthy meal each day. Each activity session must last for at least four hours a day and operates in the following school holidays.
The entitlement for each eligible child is:
- 4 days for 4 hours during Easter
- 16 days for 4 hours during Summer
- 4 days for 4 hours during Winter
Children with SEND that attend mainstream schools can take part in most HAF activities. Children attending specialist schools that require additional support are likely to have an EHCP and be known to the disability team and access activities through the Short Breaks service.
The next HAF delivery period will be 2 to 5 January 2024. Vouchers and bookings will be available from 4 December 2023.
If you require any support or have any questions regarding the Holiday Activities and Food programme, please e-mail HAF@Hounslow.gov.uk or call our HAF co-ordinator on 07976 771767.
