What is our Holiday Activities and Food programme?

H&F's Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) offers a wide range of FREE activities across the borough, ensuring that every young person receives a nutritious meal.

Funded by the Department for Education, the HAF programme is designed to support families who receive benefits-related free school meals during school holidays. The programme offers a variety of free engaging activities and nutritious meals for children and young people across H&F.

Your child will qualify for the HAF programme if all these statements apply to you:

  • your child or children are eligible for benefit related free school meals (FSM)
  • you live in Hammersmith & Fulham
  • your child or children are aged between 5 and 16 years.

Not eligible? Even if you don't meet the criteria, we have a number of spaces available for those not in receipt of benefit-related FSM. Please continue to book your place.

How to book

To book activities you need to do the following on our booking system (Plinth):

  • create an account and
  • register a profile for your child or children.

Please make sure the details you provide are correct as this may affect allocations of a space.

Once registered you can search for and book activities.


You will receive an email reminding you of the activities you have booked for your child a week prior to delivery.

If you need to cancel for any reason, please do so via our booking system (Plinth).

We ask that you give at least 24 hours notice so the place can be given to another young person.
