Healthy Holidays (HAF)
SOAR manage the Healthy Activities and Food (Healthy Holidays) programme for two localities across the north of Sheffield.
The citywide programme provides free, fun activities and food for families eligible for means-tested free school meals.
We work with over 40 different community organisations to deliver a range of provision across North Sheffield.

Volunteers run and support group activities for families with children aged 0-5 years at the family centres and/or within the local community. Groups are designed to support families to engage in positive activities and build positive relationships.
If you are interested in becoming an Early Years volunteer or would like to know more, please contact the Families & Community Services team at:
or call Hanna Ramsden on 07948 842 744.
Volunteering is a great way of not only helping the local community but also helping yourself.
Whether you've volunteered before or not, SOAR is looking for people like you who are interested in volunteering!
