FUNDING: Oxfordshire County Council – Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) Grants

May 5, 2021

The Department for Education (DfE) is providing funding to local authorities to coordinate a programme that provides healthy food and enriching activities to disadvantaged children during the 2021 Easter, Summer and Christmas Holidays.

We are seeking to engage with a wide network of community-based organisations, including existing holiday care providers, schools, childminders, sports coaching, creative and performing arts providers and many others. Healthy meals must also be provided, and each activity session must last for a minimum of four hours a day, for at least four days a week for:

  • four weeks in the summer, and
  • a week at Christmas

All children in Oxfordshire who receive benefits related Free School Meals will be eligible to take part in the activities.

Grants will be awarded to organisations who can demonstrate an ability to deliver:

  • high quality enriching activities
  • provide healthy meals
  • skills, activities/classes aimed at helping children and their parents to make healthy and affordable choices
  • a positive legacy that lasts longer than the experience
