What is the HAF programme?

Applications for Christmas 2022 are now closed.

Applications for Easter 2023 will open in January 2023.

We are expecting Easter to be oversubscribed for funding, so we are asking providers to submit applications for up to 4 days maximum provision per group of children for Easter school holidays. There may be opportunity to expand this closer to the time.

Applications will be assessed based on the following criteria:

  • Previous HAF experience, with all reporting deadlines met and attendance records at 75% minimum.
  • Ofsted registration
  • Years experience running holiday clubs
  • Nutritional offer for children and families
  • Quality of activities on offer
  • Quality of food on offer 
  • Transport links and accessibility
  • SEND training, support and overall inclusivity
  • Areas of low provision and high FSM eligibility will be prioritised
  • Charities & CICs will be prioritised
  • Clear breakdown of spend
  • Level of training within the organisation
