Lewisham Holiday Activities and Food Programme: Funding Opportunity

Closed 19 May 2021

Opened 11 May 2021


London Borough Lewisham has been awarded funding by the Department of Education (DfE) to co-ordinate a local Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF).

The programme will provide free activities and healthy food for school children and young people (aged 4-16 years) eligible for and in receipt of benefit related Free School Meals (FSM) during summer and Christmas school holidays.

We are looking to award funding to a wide range of providers in Lewisham, including schools, voluntary, faith and community organisations, and other local and regional organisations and charities who can meet the aims and outcomes of the programme.

We are hoping to ensure that children across the borough have access to this programme, and will be looking for providers who can deliver in specific wards/ for specific communities as well as providers who can deliver borough-wide.
