Holidays and Food (HAF) programme from Brent Council

Brent Council receives funding from the Department for Education to deliver a Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme as part of a national scheme. The aim of the programme is to support the physical and mental health and wellbeing of children and young people, encouraging them to engage in interactive and fun activities.

The programme offers free places at holiday provision in the Easter, summer and Christmas school holidays for school-aged children in Brent who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

The next HAF programme will run during the Easter school holidays. A list of activities and information on how to book a place will be available on Brent Council’s website: Brent Holiday Activities and Food Programme.

Below you can find two leaflets with information about some of the activities taking place during the Easter Holidays.
