Sheffield Healthy Holidays

The Holiday, Activities & Food (HAF) Programme have a free holiday club programme for children and young people who receive free school meals.

There are fun activities, healthy meals, chance to meet new people and learn new skills! 

The programme can include children who don't get benefits related free school meals.  This could be because they are vulnerable in other ways such as having SEND or have a social worker.  Families will be asked about this when they register on the booking system.  The system gives some options which you can select.

If you have any questions about the form and the option you would need to select, please contact the team on:

Check out their website and there you will find the contact details for your area and how to book onto activities.
