Healthy Holidays Leeds

Healthy Holidays provides free engaging and enriching activities with a hot and healthy meal for children and young people during the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays.

Activities vary and can include sports and swimming, outdoor activities, dance, arts and crafts, as well as visits to attractions like Temple Newsam and Lotherton Hall.

The scheme is available for primary and secondary school aged children and young people in receipt of free school meals.

Funded through the Department for Education's Holiday activities and food (HAF) programme external link, we offer a wide-ranging provision at schools, voluntary organisations and council run clubs in our hubs and libraries.

How to take part

Any primary and secondary school aged children who are eligible for free school meals can take part.

If you are not claiming free school meals, you can find out if you could be eligible and apply.

Every group will provide a tasty nutritious meal and with dietary requirements catered for by advance request.

Places are limited, by advance booking only.


Most schools taking part in Healthy Holidays provide places for children that are enrolled or transitioning to that school.

If your child's school is listed below, please contact them for further information about their scheme. They may be able to refer you to other nearby locations if they have no more places available.
