HAF IT WYRE FOREST
Let life be...Healthy
Since Summer 2021, we have been apart of the Worcestershire HAF IT programme. This programme has delivered free school meal children with FREE holiday activities and food across the country.
As a part of our offer, we deliver free community outreach activities across the Wyre Forest. We also deliver school activity clubs. All of these programmes include exciting activities from ourselves and our partner organisations.
Since 2021, we have had over 5000 engagements with our services under this programme, engaging with children and young people aged 5 - 16 and above with enriching activities, including circus skills, taekwondo, adventure skills and other sports!
With support from the District Council, community groups and businesses, we have grown our offer to meet the needs of the community and support the development of children across the district.
Where to next!
WHAT WE OFFER
At the heart of what we do, is the community. Throughout 2022 we have pushed for more community events across the Wyre Forest and support several organisation's with their own. With HAF we deliver community events across five venues which include four hours of enriching activities and a free lunch. Our community outreach events are open to everyone to support all now and whatever the future may hold.
HOLIDAY CLUB ACTIVITIES
We currently deliver holiday clubs to children across the Wyre Forest aged 5 - 12, during the school holidays. To support as many as possible we work with several schools across the year and include them with our term time offer to further support schools. We work with several organisations to deliver these activities as well as deliver our own adventurous and sport platform.
