Holiday programme food and fun

We're providing a varied holiday programme with funding from the Department of Education.

A wide range of providers in Lewisham are supporting the delivery of this programme, offering various fun-packed sessions, including arts, crafts, sports and trips. 
There will be free activities and lunches for children and young people who are: 

  • aged 4 to 16 years (reception to year 11)
  • in receipt of benefit-related Free School Meals

Each club will provide:

  • a wide range of exciting activities to suit different ages and personalities
  • fun physical activity sessions
  • free, nutritious, and tasty food

The programme is provided during Easter, summer, and winter. 

Winter 2023 holiday activities and fun

We’ve teamed up with a range of local organisations to offer a fun-filled programme of free activities for the winter holidays. There is something for everyone – from sports and drama, to arts, crafts, and trips to exciting venues. 

Remember – you need to book your activity in advance. Places are allocated on first-come, first-served basis and are prioritised for children eligible for benefit related Free School Meals. 

How to book

Families who receive benefit related free school meals will receive a HAF Code via email or text message. This code will enable you to access a webpage with details of all activities and book your child’s space. Please ensure you follow the link and instructions in the message. Please note each code is unique to each family. Families with more than one child will receive a code for each child.

If you haven’t received a HAF code and your child receives benefit related free school meals, or if you require any support with bookings, please contact HAFProgramme@lewisham.gov.uk
