Holiday Activities and Food Programme ​​​​​​​

Dear GA Families

RE: Holiday Activities and Food Programme 

Please read the information below on fun activities and food support available to your family over the summer holidays. 

Families who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals can now register for the Summer Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) funded by the Department for Education.  Gloucester County Council is extending this to families, through its Holiday Activities Programme (HAP).

  • Both the HAF and HAP programmes will run for four weeks from 1 – 26 August 2022 and can register from today.  Activities include drama, various sports, art, and crafts as well as ticketed attractions.  More information is available at


  • Families eligible for benefits-related free school meals can also apply for Holiday Food Hampers and Holiday Free School Meal vouchers.  More information about the hampers can be found here


  • Families who need additional support can apply to the Household Support Fund which supports households in the most need with food, energy and water bills and other essential items.

If you have any questions or queries regarding this programme; please contact Miss Bines via email:  

Yours sincerely
