The much-awaited Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) programme is back in Harrow this summer, offering an array of free places for children and young people aged 5-16 to engage in local clubs and activities.
The programme aims to provide an exciting and enriching experience for youngsters during the school holidays.
To qualify for the HAF programme, families must reside or study in Harrow and be recipients of means-tested free school meals. In addition to the engaging activities, each child will also receive a free nutritious meal per day, ensuring their well-being throughout the summer break.
Thanks to funding allocated to over 20 local organisations, a wide range of activities will be offered. Children can choose from options like multisports, boxing, arts and crafts, football, comedy skills workshops, cooking clubs, theatre and music sessions, exciting trips, and much more.
The range of options ensures that every child will find something to pique their interest and keep them active and entertained during the school holiday. The programme caters to the needs of children with high-need SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) by offering specialised activities, while also providing inclusive activities for mainstream participants.
The Holiday Activities Programme (HAF) is a government-funded initiative that operates in collaboration with Harrow Council and the Young Harrow Foundation. This partnership aims to support families and promote the well-being of children and young people in Harrow during the summer holidays.
With the HAF programme’s return, families in Harrow can now look forward to an exciting and memorable summer, where children can learn new skills, make friends, and have fun, all while staying active and nourished.
Interested families can explore the available activities and make bookings by visiting the official website of the Young Harrow Foundation at youngharrowfoundation.org/haf-programme.
