About The Programme
The government's Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme is running across England this year. HAF offers funded school holiday clubs including food for children and young people.
Here in Northamptonshire the Holiday Activities and Food programme is known as - HAF Northants. The team delivering HAF Northants is Northamptonshire Sport. Using their understanding of activities and fun things to do in Northamptonshire (sport and more) they have handpicked a directory of enriching activities.
The HAF programme has the support of some high-profile people, probably best-known is Marcus Rashford MBE, here Marcus helps to spread the word about HAF.
