Holiday Activities and Food Programme

Providing thousands of free to access camp places for free school meal students across Hampshire, West Sussex and Wiltshire.

Overview

Throughout the year, we work with Hampshire County Council, Southampton City Council, West Sussex and Wiltshire County Councils to provide thousands of free to access camp places for children across the south funded by the HAF programme, since 2021. If your child is eligible for benefit related free school meals, then you’re able to book on to this programme.

We run a number of HAFP camps across venues across Hampshire, Wiltshire and West Sussex, and children can expect a day full of activities, games and arts and crafts!

During the holiday periods where the HAF programme is not running, we run our own Community Support Programme. This provides additional free to access places on our camps, directly funded by us as part of our social enterprise initiative.
