Holiday Activities & Food Programme

Faces Compilation

Keeping young people active and fed through the holidays

The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme is a Department for Education (DfE) funded initiative that provides free activities and food provision for children aged 4 to 16 eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) during the Easter, Summer and Christmas Holidays.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council offer a HAF Programme, providing an array of enriching and fun activities for local young people throughout the school holidays.

We want children and young people to have a choice of activities to access new experiences and opportunities. Previously, through this programme, children and young people have been able to experience arts and cultural events in the borough and participate in fun physical activities and outdoor play such as horse riding, zip lining, acrobatics, and canoeing.

The programme also offers activities that develop self-confidence, resilience, social skills and improve mental health for all children and young people who attend! Alongside these activities, nutritious meals are available for attendees each day.
