How to access the free activities

All bookings for the Shropshire HAF programme are made directly with the organisations running the holiday clubs. All eligible families will be given an information leaflet by their school or professional they are working with. The leaflet will include a code that you can use when booking onto activity.

What you need to do

  1. Use the what’s on guide to find which holiday club is suitable for your child/ren. Electronic copies of the guide will be sent to you by your child/rens school.
  2. Book onto an activity by contacting the organisation running the holiday club direct, using the contact details in the guide.
  3. When making a booking, please quote your unique HAF code
  4. If your child/ren has SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) or receives any extra help at school, before booking onto activity please contact the holiday club to discuss your child/s needs. (Please see the what's on guide for more information about SEND).
  5. If you have any queries about your booking or the activities on offer, please contact the organisation running the holiday club directly.
  6. If you've been referred onto the programme by a professional, please email for more information.

The unique code entitles your child/ren to attend four sessions of free holiday activity in Shropshire during the weeks of 3 to 7 and 10 to 14 April 2023. Please don’t use this code to book onto more than four sessions of activity or to book onto multiple programmes of activity with different providers, happening at the same time. This code is individual to your child/s school and is not transferable to other children.
