The holiday activities and food (HAF) programme is for school aged children in full time education from reception to Year 11 (inclusive), who receive benefits related free school meals. The programme offers valuable support to families on lower incomes, giving young people the opportunity to access activities with a healthy meal provision over the main school holidays at Christmas, Easter and Summer.

We work with local activity providers across Warwickshire to offer eligible families a holiday programme that has a variety of fun, engaging and enriching activities. This includes activities such as dance, multi sports clubs, drama, arts and crafts, animal care and much more.

Changes to the HAF programme for the 2022/2023 academic year

The Warwickshire HAF team are making several key changes to the HAF programme this year and how HAF codes are sent to eligible families.

HAF codes will need to be applied for via a brief online form, this is to ensure we have the correct contact details and the preferred method of how the HAF code is sent, alongside agreeing to our terms and conditions of the HAF programme. This form only takes a few minutes to complete, with a separate form required for each eligible young person. Complete the form

Once HAF codes are processed and sent to families, this unique code will last the academic year so there is no need for new codes to be re-issued for each holiday period. The code will be valid for Christmas, Easter and Summer so keep it safe. We can always re-send it if you do misplace your code.

Christmas 2022 activity listings

We will look to have a wide range of activities running from Monday 19 to Thursday 22 December, alongside a handful that will be running outside of these dates. Full listings will be available from Monday 21 November onwards.
