*Eligible families will be able to book onto the Easter 2024 HAF programme, which will take place from Monday 25 March until Thursday 28 March.

The HAF programme offers children and young people (aged five-sixteen years old) fun, local activities to get involved with during the school holidays, and the council works with over 75 providers across the borough of Walsall to deliver activities during the Christmas, Easter, and summer holidays.

As part of the programme, children are provided with a free healthy meal and learn about balanced recipes to try out with their family.

The programme is a great chance for children and young people to get together with friends, meet new people, and take part in a new or familiar activity.  

“ Once again the HAF is back for Easter 2024 with all sorts of fun activities for children and young people to book onto and enjoy during the holidays.

*Eligible families can register for the programme all-year round, and those families not registered will receive a letter containing a unique booking code for each of their children to book places onto upcoming activities.

Coming up in March we have some wonderful activities on offer, so make sure you book on to avoid disappointment!

Thanks again to our brilliant providers who host amazing activities for some of Walsall’s young people. “
