Funding available! Expressions of Interest being accepted for HAF summer provision

24 May 2021

Organisations and schools invited to submit Expressions of Interest to participate in the holiday activities and food (HAF) programme

The government recently announced that funding has been made available to expand the holiday activities and food (HAF) across England in 2021. As a result of this funding, a wide range of local providers and schools have been delivering exciting and engaging new holiday projects for children across East Sussex.

East Sussex County Council (ESCC) worked in partnership with 34 providers over the Easter holidays and already have more than 50 local organisations lined up to take part in the programme over the summer.

However, ESCC is still looking for additional provision and is inviting Expression of Interest (EOI) proposals from any providers or schools who would be interested in bidding for funding. Any provider who can deliver holiday activities and a nutritional meal for at least 4 hours a day over a 4-day period during the summer holidays for children who are in receipt of Free School Meals are eligible to apply.

EOIs can be submitted by any appropriate provider, including schools, private companies, and voluntary organisations, whether or not they have already been involved with the HAF scheme over the Easter holiday. If schools are aware of providers in their area who might be interested in submitting a proposal, please do alert them to this opportunity.

The deadline for proposals for summer provision is Friday 11 June 2021 at noon.

If you have any questions, would like to discuss a proposal or would simply like to find out more about the holiday activities and food (HAF) programme, please email haf@eastsussex.gov.uk.

You can find more information about the government provision online.
