Register your Child

Registration for Summer HAF 2022 is now closed. Registration for Winter HAF will be October 2022


Do not register more than once for each child, If you notice any errors with your child’s details just drop us an email and we can correct this for you.

If you have already registered for HAF in 2021 / 2022 and your child(ren) already have HAF ID number you do not have to re-register, we will send you a reminder email at the beginning of June, so just sit back and wait until booking opens on 8th June 2022.

We do have a process in place that checks the criteria so please ensure that your child is aged between 5-16 years and are in receipt of income eligible free school meals because you are a low income family.

Please do not contact providers directly, the team here will get in touch with full booking instructions before the holidays.

Before you start!!! 

Already Registered? If you have registered your child(ren) for HAF already the good thing is you do not have to do anything! Do nothing but wait for an email from us that you will receive at the beginning of March! Please check your email and spam on and get in touch if you do not receive anything.  

Not Yet Registered? If you are in receipt of income eligible free school meals because you are a low income family and have children aged between 5 and 16 and you have not previously registered or taken part in HAF activities you will have two weeks to register your child. Registrations will open in October 2022 via our website.

The focus of this programme will be on children eligible for benefits-related free school meals. Councils are asked to ensure that the offer of free holiday activity is available for all children eligible for free school meals in Dudley Borough.  

The programme runs for four weeks in the summer a week at Easter and a week at Christmas.  Dudley Council and their partners have flexibility about how they organise activities to best serve the needs of children and families in this area. Therefore, it is important to register your child/children in good time for us to plan the activities your child will love to attend. 

  • Are you resident in Dudley Borough? 
  • Is your child/children age 5 – 16 years old ?
  • Do your child/ children receive free school meals because you are on a low income, or your school have referred you?

If you answer yes to all three questions, we cannot wait to receive your registration!

Eligibility will be checked any registrations that do not fall in the above categories will be made void!
