Holidays Together

Providers of holiday and/or term time activities for children and young people can apply for funding to deliver this provision.

Active Together, working with Leicestershire County Council are coordinating the Department for Education funded Holiday Activities & Food Programme (HAF), known as 'Holidays Together', across Leicestershire.

Leicestershire Holidays Together is a free and exciting Department for Education-funded holiday programme for school-aged children and young people who are:

  • attending Reception to year 11 (inclusive)
  • receiving benefits-related free school meals.
  • living in Leicestershire.

The aim is that the children who attend the provision will be supported:

  • to eat more healthily over the school holidays;
  • to be more active during the school holidays;
  • to take part in engaging and enriching activities;
  • to be safe and not to be socially isolated;
  • to have greater knowledge of health and nutrition; and
  • to be more engaged with school and other local services.

Leicestershire County Council will be awarding funding to Leicestershire schools, charity, voluntary and community sector organisations and other out of school and holiday activity organisations to deliver Holidays Together provision.
