HAF Fun Pompey – the story so far…
Portsmouth 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 can provide free holiday provision, including nutritious food and enriching activities, for children aged 5-16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.
During the Easter and Summer holidays we worked in collaboration with a wide range of providers to create a fantastic programme of activities and events. These ranged from sport to performing arts, day trips to art workshops, and water sports to cooking classes. It also included events where the whole family could get involved.
We had nearly 15,000 funded spaces available, in 54 locations across the whole city and every child was provided with tasty, nutritious food. Please see the interactive map for the events that were available near you.
Over the next few weeks we will be working on the winter programme. Bookings for these festive activities will go live in November and will include details on how to book (please note spaces may be limited per child). More will be added each week in November and December so keep checking for updates.
Please email email@example.com if you have any enquiries. Use #HAF2021 on social media to post about your experiences of the programme so far. If you are a local provider who would like to find out more about delivering activities as part of our HAF programme please email us.
