Apply for Funding

Funding for activity providers

After a great programme of activities in 2021, Burnley Fun Food and Friends HAF is looking to deliver activities over the Easter holiday.

Deadline for applications – 28th February 2022.

Activity providers need to complete both the Burnley HAF application and the HAF provider statement to apply for funding.

Update Guidance from the DfE for the 2022 HAF Programme

Easter: 

  •  We expect that all participating children should benefit from at least a week of face-to-face provision at Easter, which should be for a minimum of four days. 
  • For most children, each day at Easter should consist of at least four hours of provision but the local authority should ensure that provision is tailored to need.

Summer: 

  •  For local authorities that have a summer holiday that spans six full calendar weeks, participating children should be offered at least four weeks of face-to- face provision, which cover a minimum of 16 days. 
  • For local authorities that have a summer holiday that is less than six full calendar weeks, participating children should be offered at least three weeks of face-to-face provision, which should cover a minimum of 12 days. If only three weeks are offered at summer, then these local authorities, are expected to offer an additional week during a half-term holiday period (see below), so that their overall provision reaches six weeks across the year. 
  • For most children, each day during summer should consist of at least four hours of provision but the local authority should ensure that provision is tailored to need. 

Christmas: 

  • For most children, each day of face-to-face provision at Christmas should consist of at least four hours of provision but the local authority should ensure that provision is tailored to need. 
  • We know that many areas will continue to provide a HAF programme that runs for more hours, days and weeks than our minimum expectation and we encourage them to continue to do this. The paragraphs above set out our minimum expectations and we welcome those areas that are offering more than the minimum. 
  • We expect that all participating children should benefit from a week of support which covers a minimum of four days. As in 2021, our preference is at least four days of face-to-face provision. However, where this is not possible, it should consist of at least two days of face-to-face provision complimented by at least two days of HAF support which can be provided in the form of high quality food hampers and activity packs. 

Who can apply? 

This fund is open to the voluntary and community sector, schools and private providers who can meet the objectives of the Burnley Holiday Activities and Food Programme.
