The HAF programme is primarily for children aged 4 to 16 in reception to year 11 in receipt of benefits tested free school meals. If your child (or children) is eligible a code should automatically be sent to you via gov notify by text or email.

Please note that not all activity providers will be able to accommodate the full age range of the programme. 

If your child is not currently receiving benefits tested free school meals and you think they will be eligible, you can make a free school meals application.

Apply for free school meals

The Warwickshire HAF fund can also support a certain number of families who are facing significant financial barriers and fall into one of the categories below:

  • Children with an allocated social worker or family support worker  
  • Young carers  
  • Those with an open early help plan (please note this does not apply for early help plans that are done solely through schools).  

Your allocated worker can apply for a code by completing an internal referral form which is available from hafprogramme@warwickshire.gov.uk


HAF activities are available during Easter, summer, and Christmas school holidays. 

Please note activities are not available during the half term holidays. 

Each eligible child can access four sessions at Easter, 16 sessions at summer and four sessions at Christmas.

All HAF providers offer fully inclusive programmes please speak with the providers direct should you require any additional support for your child.
