Tameside Holiday Activity & Food Fund (HAF)

Aims/priorities: The Tameside Holiday Activity & Food Fund (HAF) has been developed though the department of education (DFE) to engage and deliver interventions to a large cohort of young people from aged 6 years up to 16 (Currently in School year 11). There are 9,554 young people in Tameside who receive free school meals, the main aim of this programme is to engage with these young people over the school holiday period to offer FREE holiday activities supported with interventions and to provide them with food during the daytime, this will also be underpinned by offering training and leadership opportunities to help develop pathways for lifelong learning and development. 

All holiday programmes will run over the summer school holidays and October half term in 2021

Tameside MBC/Active Tameside are responsible for the co-ordination of the programme and are looking to develop partnerships with organisations and offer this funding to targeted areas who have a high percentage of children who are eligible to receive free school meals.

The holiday programme funding will be awarded through a grant process where we are looking for organisations to apply for funding that will enable young people on FREE school meals to attend holiday programmes giving them the opportunity to attend a programme FREE of charge.

Who can apply? Voluntary and Community Organisations.

Grant amount: The grant(s) available for organisations will be up to £1,180 per group for children who are eligible to receive FREE school meals aged 6 -16 years of age. This must be for a minimum of four hours per day for four days of the week.

Not all monies will be released until full completion of evaluation and case studies for each project.
