Holiday Activities and Food programme 2022-23

Brent’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme!

The Christmas Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme is taking place in Brent throughout the school Christmas holidays in 2022.

The programme is funded by the Department for Education and aims to support the physical and mental health and wellbeing of children and young people, by providing free places at school holiday provision, alongside a healthy meal each day, to Brent children and young people in Reception – Year 11 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals or who have been identified as otherwise in need of the programme. Details on eligibility, available activities, and booking information can be found on Brent’s HAF website.

Most HAF eligible families will receive confirmation of their eligibility via their school holiday supermarket voucher email. Professionals working with eligible children and young people can also refer eligible children to the programme directly, by providing them with written confirmation of eligibility. For further information on eligibility criteria and referring children and young people to the programme, please visit the following page:
