Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme

Holiday Activities and Food Programme

Sutton Council has secured funding from the Department for Education to provide a Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme for 6 weeks during the school holidays for children eligible for Free School Meals.

The HAF programme is funded by the Department for Education to provide additional support to eligible families to access holiday activities.

School holidays can be a particularly difficult and challenging time for some families who may have limited access to activities, food or learning opportunities. Sutton Council have worked closely with our partners, including schools, voluntary organisations and existing childcare providers to plan a programme of activities for eligible families during the Christmas holidays in 2021.
