Coventry HAF Programme | Free Holiday Clubs in Coventry Summer 2024

What is HAF?

HAF is a national Department for Education funded programme aimed at enabling children and young people to attend free holiday clubs in Coventry, free day trips, and nutritious food during the Christmas, Easter and Summer school holidays. It is all free for eligible children and young people. Coventry’s HAF programme is delivered by a wide range of organisations across the City.

Coventry HAF has a credit approach. Each eligible child has an allocation of a total of 4 credits for the Christmas and Easter school holidays and 16 credits for the Summer school holiday. Credits are dependent on each activity. This information will be detailed in the activity brochure and web directory where bookings are made.

The next holiday programme will be Summer Fun taking place in the summer school holidays (Monday 22nd July 2024 - Sunday 1st September 2024).
