Ashfield holiday activities and food programme (HAF)

Nottinghamshire Holiday Activity and Food programme (Notts HAF) is funded by the Department for Education and will run throughout Nottinghamshire during Easter, Summer, October and Winter holidays. Working with our partners, we will offer free activities and food to children and young people aged 5 – 16 years that are in receipt of benefits related free school meals.

The programme aims to support the physical and mental wellbeing of primary and secondary school children, through engagement in a wide variety of activities, and provision of a nutritious, school standard meal.
