Energize announcement: HAF Programme partnership

We are excited to announce that Energize have been accepted onto the Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) programme!

The HAF programme is targeted at young people eligible for free school meals. The summer holidays are long, and families of children on FSM have it harder than ever right now. The HAF programme will ensure young people will not go hungry over the summer, and gives young people some brilliant activities to get involved in.

All young people deserve to have healthy, hot meals all year round, and a safe, fun place to be during the holidays. We are delighted to partner with the HAF programme, playing our part to ensure young people get the help and nourishment they need this summer.
