ERYC Holiday Activities and Food Grants

The ERYC Holiday Activities and Food Grants are currently open for both Christmas and Annual grants. This ensures that children who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals have access to high quality holiday provision as well as healthy and balanced meals.

ERYC are keen to find those organisations who would be willing and able to ensure that ERYC have accessible provision for all. Whether this be the local tennis club, the local school or an independent business passionate about getting young people involved ERYC want HAF grants to benefit local communities.

I have attached our press release.

We have also had a short video created alongside our portfolio holder which we feel outlines a little bit more of what HAF is all about. It is available on youtube via the following link –

Free activities for children and young people on the Council’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme

ERYC have requested Ellerker Parish Council to share some information about the Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF).  ERYC are into the second year of a 3-year Department for Education funded programme which enables children and young people who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals who attend an East Riding school to eat healthily and be active during the school holidays.  There are over 40 HAF delivery partners organising fun activities across the East Riding throughout the 6-week summer holidays, with sessions lasting at least 4 hours and a meal is provided for each participant too.  All of the programmes are inclusive, but ERYC also offer a specific programme of activities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
ERYC recognise the pressures on low-income families particularly in the holiday period and ask for help in spreading the word about these free activities.  Attached are some flyers of all the programmes.  
If parents and carers see something they like, all they have to do is get in touch with the provider to secure their child’s place.  All East Riding pupils in receipt of benefits related free school meals are able to attend a maximum of 16 activities for free in the summer holidays. 
HAF is a targeted programme, so for everyone else who isn’t eligible, the school’s out website is starting to be populated with new sessions being added daily
If you have any queries or need the information please do get in touch with:-
