Southampton City Council are delighted to be delivering the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme during the Easter, Summer and Christmas 2021 school holidays. Funded by the Department for Education, we welcome the opportunity to provide free holiday provision, including nutritious food and enriching activities, for children aged 5-16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
We are working in collaboration with a significant range of providers to create a wonderful programme of activities and events. These range from sport to skiing on the dry slopes, art workshops to drumming workshops, water sports to cooking classes. It also includes events such as a daily choir session, where the whole family can get involved as these will be delivered online and virtually.
We have over 48,000 funded spaces available and each child will be provided with tasty, nutritious food. Some of our providers are also hosting paid for spaces and we recommend visiting their websites to find out more (see listings for contact details).
Bookings are now live so see details below of how to book (please note spaces may be limited per child). More may be added in the next few weeks so keep checking for any updates. You can also use our interactive map to find out what is held in your local area so when you select a location it will take you directly to the relevant booking details.
