Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity for an Programme Grants Lead to ensure the effective delivery, roll-out and oversight of a vital local holiday hunger programme in Harrow.

In November 2020, the government announced that the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme will be expanded across the whole of England in 2021. The programme has provided healthy food and enriching activities to disadvantaged children since 2018. The programme will cover the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays in 2021. School holidays can be particular pressure points for many families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes, often leading to a holiday experience gap.

Harrow Council have commissioned Young Harrow Foundation to lead on programme delivery and we are seeking a competent HAF Programme Grants Lead to join our small dynamic team, and in particular to work with our experienced Grants Administrator to ensure a smooth and successful roll out and oversight of the programme throughout Harrow.
