Free Summer activity programme

9 Jul 2021,

Free Summer activity programme

Available for young people across Bradford District

This summer Bradford Council is participating in the government’s Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF). Free places at holiday clubs will be available for children and young people eligible who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

Bradford Council is working with local schools and voluntary and community organisations to provide the HAF programme.

The free places are funded by the Department for Education.

Children will be able to access a variety of clubs throughout the summer holidays, including specific provisions available for children with SEND or additional needs. The sessions will include a variety of fun activities, including sports, music, arts and other exciting opportunities to learn and develop skills, alongside a nutritious meal each day.

The local programme is due to launch in July.

Parents and carers who think their children and young people might benefit from free holiday clubs should speak to their school.
