The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) is a Government funded programme that provides free holiday clubs for reception to year 11 pupils in receipt of benefits-related free school meals in Lincolnshire over the summer, Christmas and Easter holidays.

The HAF programme is designed to ensure children and young people reach physical activity guidelines and develop and consolidate their skills and knowledge. It also provides them access to nutritious food and improves their understanding and awareness of healthy eating, healthy lifestyles and positive behaviours. 

Easter delivery dates

The next HAF delivery will take place during the Easter holidays from Monday 3 April to Friday 14 April (excluding weekends and bank holidays).

Further information will follow on the location of clubs.

How to book a place

Easter HAF bookings will go live on Monday 6 March.

To book on to a club, you will require a HAF Evoucher, which your school will provide. Your Evoucher will include a link that you can click on to take you to the booking site. The booking site lists all Lincolnshire HAF clubs. You can narrow your search by postcode for the most local clubs to you. Please contact your child's school if you do not receive your HAF Evoucher.

If you haven't received your HAF Evoucher and your child's school is closed due to the school holiday, please contact HAF@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

Cancelling bookings

If your child cannot attend a booked session, cancel your booking as soon as possible so that another child can be offered the place. Providers can remove all future bookings if there is non-attendance of more than two sessions or if you have not confirmed your cancellation with the provider. We cannot guarantee that HAF Evouchers will be reimbursed if bookings are cancelled late.
