SGC Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme

The following provision is fully funded for young people that are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.


The Holiday activities and Food (HAF) programme is running again during the Easter holidays for children and young people in South Glos.


Dates are generally between Tuesday 2 April and Friday 12 April but will vary by provider.


The HAF programme is for children and young people aged 5 to 16 who receive benefits-related free school meals. Before booking funded HAF places, you need to have successfully applied for free school meals at www.southglos.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals 


Please follow these steps:


  • Visit www.southglos.gov.uk/HAF for full information on the HAF programme and further support available to families.
  • Click on ‘book a space for your child now’ – this will take you directly to our booking platform with full listings of all the available activities and clubs.
  • You will need to register your child on this system unless they attended a HAF programme over the summer holidays – in which case you will already have an account, so you will simply need to book the dates.
  • The system will run an eligibility check to ensure that your child is registered on our benefits-related free school meals list. The list is kept up to date on a weekly basis, so it’s best to build in time to apply for benefits-related free school meals ahead of booking HAF places.
  • The booking system is mobile friendly so should be accessible to most families.


If you do not have online access, you will need to contact the HAF club provider directly to book places for you.
