Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme - Summer 2022

What is HAF?

The London Borough of Redbridge, funded by the Department for Education (DfE), are working with a range of partners to offer the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme for Summer 2022.

As well as providing a daily meal, we hope that the enriching activities and nutritional education for every child and young person will provide new experiences and help them develop lasting skills and knowledge. 

Is your child eligible for a HAF place?

If your child is currently in Reception up to Year 11 and is in receipt of Free School Meals at school, you can apply for a HAF Summer 2022 place. Your child's school must be claiming for Free School Meals for your child to be eligible.
