This page is updated with the latest information, guidance and resources for Young Barnet Foundation members delivering BACE Holidays projects as part of the national Holiday Activities with Food (HAF) programme.

Holiday Activities with Food Programme (HAF) Member Information and Resources

BACE Holidays is a project delivered in partnership with Barnet Council and funded by the Department for Education HAF (Holiday Activity & Food) programme to offer children and young people who currently receive free school meals access to enriching activities and a healthy lunch over the holidays.













As a result of this programme children who attend these events will:

  • Eat more healthily over the school holidays

  • Be more active during the school holidays

  • Take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment

  • Be safe and not to be socially isolated

  • Have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition

  • Be more engaged with school and other local services


We also want to ensure that the families who participate in this programme: 

  • Develop their understanding of nutrition and food budgeting

  • Are signposted towards other information and support e.g. health

  • Employment and education

Summer 2022 to Winter 2024 Delivery

Members, both existing HAF providers and new are being encouraged to consider delivering HAF over future school holidays.

The criteria and requirements of delivery are changing.  Young Barnet Foundation and LBB will be outlining these changes, in most cases fairly subtle, in the upcoming weeks and inviting members to apply to deliver during Summer and Winter delivery for 2022.    There will then be future funding rounds for 2023 and 2024. 

Don't feel that you are able to run a whole camp?   We want to speak to Young Barnet Foundation members who have skills or an offer that could be purchased in as part of a supply chain to the other providers, offering workshops, courses or an alternative activity to that run on other days at the camps.
