Funding for the HAPpy: Holiday Activities Programme

In an initiative funded by the Department for Education, existing or prospective organisers of holiday activity programmes can access funding to deliver daily, four hour programmes where those young people in receipt of free school meals will be able to take part in a range of food, sports and cultural activities, and receive advice on nutrition and cooking skills.

Programmes can be led by a range of organisations from public, private and community & voluntary sectors.

Delivered across Hertfordshire throughout the Easter holidays, the HAPpy: Holiday Activities Programme will be a welcome boost to some of those facing the greatest need at this time. In the light of ongoing restrictions and uncertainty, the programmes – subject to any prevailing lockdown restrictions – will be held at a range of venues including schools, community halls, parks and leisure centres. Additionally, the scheme is being twin tracked to include a comprehensive online menu of opportunities for young people to stay active and keep connected. We would be delighted to welcome prospective delivery organisations to attend information webinars which will take place on Friday 12 February and Thursday 18 February. For anyone unable to attend the live webinars a recording will be available along with an FAQ list.

The grants programme for the Easter holidays is being administered by the Herts Community Foundation and will open on the Wednesday 10 February. Anyone hoping to deliver at Easter is encouraged to find out more about the criteria of the programme.

The HAPpy programme will also be running for four weeks of the summer holidays and one week at Christmas. Further details for these holidays will be released in due course.
