Apply for Funding

Applications are now open

After a great summer of activities, Burnley Fun Food and Friends Winter HAF is looking for providers to deliver activities over the Christmas holiday for the Winter HAF Programme.

Deadline for applications - 29th October 2021.

You will need to complete both the Burnley HAF application and the HAF provider statement to apply for funding.

Update Guidance from the DfE for the Winter HAF Programme

In recognition of the possible challenges posed by the weather, the continuing uncertainty around Covid-19 as well as the levels of demand from families over the winter HAF period, the DfE have amended the HAF guidance for delivery over this period (as below) to allow condensed delivery (e.g. over 2 days) or a mixed model of delivery:

We expect face-to-face provision to remain a central element of the HAF programme at Christmas, and in the first instance we would encourage you to offer four days of face-to-face holiday clubs where that is possible.

However, if necessary, we are also content for you to offer a blended programme of both face-to-face provision alongside high-quality food hampers and activity packs providing it meets our expectation of a minimum of 4 days' worth of provision/support.

If you are unable to deliver 4 days of face-to-face provision across your settings, an alternative approach, meeting our minimum expectation of how your provision might be delivered is:

  • Two days of face-to-face provision - Our expectation is that all children taking part in HAF this Christmas should receive a minimum of two days of face-to-face provision.
  • This could be similar to the HAF provision delivered at Easter and in the summer.
  • It could also be, for example, a Christmas fayre where children and their families are invited along to take part in activities together, prepare a festive meal together and socialise. At these events, we expect that those attending should eat high quality, healthy food and take part in some fun activities.
  • It could also involve a day trip, day out or a cultural enrichment experience, providing that this includes a healthy meal as well as an element of physical activity, for example, a walk.
  • Alongside this, we would expect that children who attend the above face-to-face provision also receive the equivalent of a minimum of two further days of support in the form of high-quality food hampers and activity packs.
