The Lancashire HAF (Holiday Activities & Food) Programme 2021

The Lancashire Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme 2021

The county council has received £4.2m in funding from the government’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme to deliver a range of school holiday activities for children and young people between the ages of 4-16 who are eligible for a free school meal. This is the first year that Lancashire has received funding under this programme, and we want as many children and young people as possible to benefit from it.

We will be working with a wide range of partners including district councils, third sector and private organisations to deliver the HAF programme. In line with HAF requirements, we will be delivering one week at Easter (details below), four weeks over the summer holiday and one week at Christmas. The funding will cover a minimum of four hours a day, four days a week of activities, with food provided for the children and young people who attend. (ONLINE ONLY AT THE MOMENT)
