Hertfordshire children set to have a HAPpy winter!

The winter holidays are looking brighter for disadvantaged children and young people in Hertfordshire thanks to an exciting partnership.

Hertfordshire County Council, Herts Sports Partnership and Hertfordshire Community Foundation will once again join forces to deliver healthy food alongside sport and physical activity, under the name HAPpy: Hertfordshire’s Holiday Activity Programme.

The programme is open to children and young people aged 5-16, with those in receipt of benefits-related free school meals eligible for free. The aim is to help close the holiday experience gap that some disadvantaged families may face over this period.

Eligible families can get their unique HAPpy booking code from their child’s school from 22nd November.

Booking online is open from 6th December through the link below:

If you or your team works closely with vulnerable children/families and can help with promotion of the programme, please email us:

Once we know your service can support this, we will then send out the relevant information to you to help promote the programme to your families.

We want to make sure every child who is eligible is provided with the opportunity to attend.
