Holiday Activity and Food Programme Pompey
Portsmouth City Council are delighted to be delivering the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme during the Easter, Summer and Christmas 2021 school holidays. Funded by the Department for Education, funds have been made available to provide free holiday provision, including healthy food and enriching activities, for children aged 5-16 who are eligible for benefits related free school meals.
For our HAF Fun Pompey winter programme we are very thankful to the 24 providers joining us over the Christmas school holidays. We are offering over 3,500 funded spaces, in over 40 locations across the city and every child will be provided with tasty, nutritious food. Running from Saturday 18 December 2021 to Monday 3 January 2022, the festivities and activities range from cooking to sport, theatre to ice staking, art to robotics and much more. Spaces are free for those eligible for free school meals and there are ringfenced spaces for those who are non-FSM but deemed vulnerable via a professional lead referral. There are also activities for the whole family to enjoy and attend together. Bookings are now open!

In Portsmouth City we have been working closely with our activity providers to make sure they are as inclusive and accessible as possible. We even have SEND specific activities on offer!
