School holidays can be a tricky time for some families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes.
The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) aims to bridge the gap and help reduce the stresses some families may be facing. Together the scheme aims to help children;
- eat more healthily,
- be more active,
- take part in engaging and enriching activities,
- be safer and reduce social isolation.
What’s on offer?
There will be lots of free activities camps for children and young people to attend through out August - details will all be announced soon.
Who is the programme for?
Children aged between 4 - 16 living in or attending a school in the Tewkesbury District.
Priority is given to children who receive benefits-related free school meals but places are also available for children who are considered by the local authority as vulnerable or in need of this provision. This may include, for example:
- children assessed as being in need
- looked-after children
- children with an EHC plan (education, health and care)
- children assessed as otherwise vulnerable
- children living in areas of high deprivation
- children who have been impacted by the Covid pandemic.
