School aged children and young people who receive benefit related free school meals can enjoy Easter fun with the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.

HAF providers are looking forward to welcoming families who have already booked sessions with them from Tuesday 2 April to Friday 12 April. Please remember you can only book a maximum of 4 sessions over the Easter break.

Providers in Southend-on-Sea have been accepting bookings for Easter sessions since Thursday 14 March. To view participating providers and to book sessions directly, parents and guardians will need to visit the dedicated HAF section on the Livewell Southend website

Children and young people who receive benefit related free school meals are eligible to take part in the programme and families can book up to a maximum of four sessions and attend one club daily.

The following HAF clubs still have spaces across Southend, although these spaces are limited:

If you think your child or young person is eligible, and you do not receive your E-Voucher, please contact your child’s school or email the HAF team at haf@Southend.gov.uk
