Free holiday clubs are being held again in Leicestershire over the Easter break for children and young people eligible for free school meals.

Families can sign up now for the sessions which include activities such as arts and crafts, sports, dance, games and music, alongside a nutritious meal.

Eligible parents and carers will receive an e-voucher from Hello@holidayactivities.com. They can then visit www.leicestershire.gov.uk/HAF to view the activities and book a place. Alternatively, available sessions can be viewed at www.active-together.org/holidays-together

The Leicestershire Holidays Together scheme is run by Leicestershire County Council along with Active Together as part of the government’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.

 

"HAF sessions are a great way for children and young people to try new things, enjoy healthy food and make new friends within their local community.

“ I would encourage any parents with eligible children to have a look at the range of activities available and sign up ”


 

 “We want to ensure that as many eligible children and young people as possible access these Holiday Activities and Food Programme sessions. We encourage parents to book and take up these free opportunities for their children to be active and receive a healthy meal.” 


HAF providers include local schools, voluntary and community organisations and childcare providers.

-             If your child is eligible for benefits related free school meals and has not received an e-voucher, please contact their school directly.

Leicestershire Holidays Together is funded by the Department for Education (DFE).
