Supporting children and families

Cotswold District is home to lots of families and children. We work with partners through our Children and Families partnership to provide opportunities such as holiday activities, but also give support for when things aren’t going so well. Please see below for further details.

Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme

The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme is funded by the Department of Education, with strict guidelines on eligibility. HAF can only be offered to those in reception to year 11 who receive benefits-related free school meals.

We understand all children and young people can benefit from a programme like HAF, which is why we’ve been working hard to secure extra funding to extend the offer to all families, just as we did in Easter with our Holiday Activities Programme ‘HAP’ Easter offer.

We are happy to announce that we have now secured this additional funding for Summer 2022, so together with our local partners we will be able to offer some HAP opportunities to parents during the coming Summer holiday.
