Holiday Activity and Food Programme

Hillingdon’s Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) Programme is a national initiative funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and managed locally by Hillingdon Council to enable children and young people to access free holiday provision over the Summer period. It is open to those aged between 5 and16 years old (including 4-year-olds if in Reception), and young people up to the age of 18 years old with Special, Educational, Needs and Disabilities (SEND) who are in receipt of Free School Meals. Through the programme, children and young people can develop new skills, take part in creative and physical activities, learn about food and cooking, and enjoy nutritious meals each day.
