Winter Holiday Activities and Food programme

Date:  December 2021


Dear Parent or Guardian

The Winter HAF programme starts on the 23rd December and there are lots of great activities happening over the school holidays.

Children and young people will be able to access hundreds of activities throughout the winter break including specific provision available for children with SEND or additional needs, at no cost to you. There’s a great range of activities across the city including boxing, trampolining, football, music, dance, Christmas parties, cycling, cooking, climbing, films, bowling, arts and crafts, drama, trips out, yoga, circus skills and much more!  Every day there will be a meal available for every child that attends.

To find out where your nearest scheme is please click on this link – or visit and click on the Winter HAF link.

When you have chosen an activity, you will need to contact that organisation to book a place.  If your child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then please discuss this with the organisation when you book.

Liverpool City Council is working with the local schools, voluntary and community organisations, and childcare providers to provide the HAF programme.  The programme is funded by the Department for Education.

The Early Help Directory also provides a wealth of useful information and support for families – Early Help Directory
