WF Happy Healthy Holidays- part of the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme

We are excited to announce that we have loads of fun activities happening this Easter as part of our WF Happy Healthy Holidays programme. Wakefield Council are working with over forty voluntary and community organisations, local schools and childcare providers to provide an Easter holiday filled with free activities and food for children and families eligible for income – related free school meals throughout the district. There are free places available for any children and young people (from Reception year to those aged 16) who are eligible for income based free school meals. This opportunity is provided as part of the government’s expanded Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.


What Activities are Available?

There are lots of activities on offer including dance and theatre workshops, football, arts and crafts, day trips, animation workshops, sports activities, cooking, food and nutrition activities and much more!


How Can I Book a Place?

If your child is eligible for Income Based Free School Meals please visit our website:

You will find a link to the booking site, which is now live. Please do check back as new activities / places may be added over the coming days.

If you do not have access to the internet, a valid email address or a smartphone please contact your school who can provide information on the activities running in your area and will be able to provide contact information so you can contact the provider directly and they can make the booking(s) on your behalf.

If your child requires extra support due to SEND needs or any other, please have a conversation with the provider in the first instance to ensure that they are able to support your child’s needs at the session.
