EASTER 2024 HOLIDAY & FOOD activities for children

Dear Parent or Guardian


The Easter HAF programme starts on the 2nd April and there are lots of great activities happening over the school holidays.


Children and young people, from reception to age 16, who are eligible for benefits related free school meals, will be able to access hundreds of activities throughout the Easter holidays including specific provision available for children with SEND or additional needs, at no cost.


There’s a great range of activities across the city including Easter Egg hunts, Easter parties, bubble football, nerf wars, mindfulness, swimming, football, music, dance, cycling, gymnastics, theatre tech, cooking, discos, podcasting, arts and crafts, drama, basketball, trips out and nature walks! 


A meal will be provided for every child attending.


From Monday 11th March you can find out where your nearest scheme by clicking on this link or go to and click on the Easter HAF activities link.


When you have chosen the activity/scheme you will need to contact that organisation to book a place.  Each organisation will have either a telephone number, email address or online booking system.  If your child has any additional needs or dietary requirements then please discuss this with the organisation when you book.


There is no central booking system so please read the details of the programmes on the website and contact the providers directly.


Liverpool City Council is working with Mersey Play Action Council, the local schools, voluntary and community organisations, and childcare providers to deliver the Easter HAF programme.  This programme is funded by the Department for Education.


The Family Information and SEND Directory also provides a wealth of useful information and support for families - FISD.
