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.
If you're interested in getting involved as a HAF provider, please send us an email at:

Volunteering is a great way of not only helping the local community but also helping yourself.
Thousands of people volunteer in Sheffield for a huge range of charities, community groups and organisations (Volunteer Centre Sheffield). Whether you've volunteered before or not, SOAR is looking for people like you who are interested in volunteering!
