Happy Healthy Holidays

Children and young people receiving free school meals are being invited to sign up now to enjoy free activities during the winter break with our Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF).

Winter Holiday Activities

Funded by the Department for Education, 'Happy Healthy Holidays' provides a great opportunity for local children and young people who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals to get out and about, get active and meet new friends. The sessions include a variety of fun activities alongside a nutritious meal each day.

The programme includes specific provisions available for children with SEND or additional needs, at no cost to you.

Our Winter programme of activities is being delivered by a whole host of providers (listed below) and takes place between 19th and 22nd December.

Paid for places are available in some of the clubs for children who are not eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

Anyone with any queries on the programme can email HAF@lancaster.gov.uk and someone will be in touch.
