HELP PAYING FOR YOUR CHILDCARE

Receive support with your childcare costs via HAF Funded Spaces; Tax Free Childcare and Universal Credit Schemes

Latest Information:  NEW HAF registration process for this summer!

After the May Half Term, Hampshire County Council will be inviting eligible families to sign up for free school holiday clubs over the summer holidays, as part of the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) scheme. In a change to our normal approach, this summer all bookings will require children accessing benefit-related free school meal (FSM) support to be registered with the council ahead of booking and attending schemes. By registering, you will receive a unique code that can be used to book places for our scheme(s).

Q: How do I book a space once I’ve got my code?

Once you have your code, send us a message using the link below and we will email you our registration link. Availability is VERY limited, and spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Q: What times and dates will Freedom by running this summer?

Times: 9:30am to 3:30pm

Dates: The club starts on Wednesday 24th July and runs for 16 days (Mon -Fri) Wednesday 14th August.
