Holiday Activity Fund Grant – Nottingham

Active Notts, Funding, News

The Holiday Activity Fund programme aims to provide activities and food for children eligible for Free School Meals during the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays, plus October half term.

Nottingham City Council is looking for lead organisations to run mass engagement programmes, providing high quality enrichment and sporting activities over Nottingham’s four main school holidays – Easter, summer, October half term and Christmas in 2024.

Delivery will be a week at Easter, three weeks in the summer, a week in October and a week at Christmas. (For HAF, the DfE limits the week to 4 days). This is 24 days in total.

Successful organisations will work collaboratively, strategically and operationally with other Nottingham based providers to embed a joined up approached to the delivery of the Holiday Activity Fund.

Lead organisations should act as supporting mechanism for smaller Holiday Activity Fund providers. They are integral to helping to improve policies, procedures and delivery across the programme to add to the legacy effect of the Holiday Activity Fund, enhancing localised community provision for years to come.

Nottingham City Council is welcoming applications for both their open funding round – suitable for small deliverers – and lead organisations to support with the delivery of the Holiday Activity Fund programme across 2024.

The bidding process for this will run from 21st November until 5pm on 26th December 2023.
