Nutrition + exercise + confidence = Healthy LIFE

Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) 

School holidays can be pressure points for some families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes. For some that can lead to children and young people being:

  • less likely to access organised out-of-school activities

  • more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health

  • more likely to experience social isolation

The government launched the Holiday Activities and Food programme as a response to this issue and we were delighted to run two pilot programmes at Easter and a further 13 clubs this summer in St Leonards, Sidley (Bexhill) and Eastbourne and now further activity in the run up to Xmas.

 

This summer we delivered a whole range of activity for 5-16 year olds including street art, arts and crafts, music, poetry and football, power hooping, pilloxing and creative tech in schools and community spaces, teaming up with Heart of Sidley to co produce the Sidley Summer of Fun.

"Can we come everyday? 

"I feel more confident to express myself"

“Angel had great fun and lots of care and interaction from staff. She spoke out for the first time in an interview and now loves vegi burgers”


“Absolutely delighted with the programme. My son loved it! I wouldn’t have been able to afford clubs during the holidays, so I am grateful for this programme.”
