The HAF Programme in Shropshire: free activities and food for Shropshire families 

Shropshire HAF (Holiday Activities and Food) managed by Shropshire Council is an exciting programme of holiday activities.

Over the Easter/spring, summer and Christmas/winter holidays, schools, voluntary and community organisations and childcare providers are running activities.

There are free places available on the HAF programme for children and young people aged four (reception class age) to 16, who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals and for those who have been referred onto HAF by a professional. Find out more about eligibility on our 'Who can access the programme' page.

Funded by the DfE (Department for Education), the aim of the programme is to make holiday activities as accessible and inclusive as possible.
