HAPpy Learn & Share

Don't miss out on your chance to be part of this great event! - We are aiming for at least 1 representative from each 2023/4 HAPpy provider. Ideally this would be the programme LEAD but representation from anyone in your organisation would be beneficial. Please only book 1 ticket for your organisation unless otherwise advised.

Following the success of our HAPpy Learn & Share events run in March & October 2023, we are coming together again to celebrate and review 2023 HAF delivery, 2024 so far and discuss what the future holds for HAF. We have put together another exciting day to network and learn alongside other HAPpy providers with content developing on the following key themes identified as needing support in recent delivery phases and with an eye on how we can increase the sustainability of this or a similar programme given the pressures of cost of living and politcal climate:

  • Environmental Sustainability - How to incorporate more environmental sustainable practices into your delivery and stretch your budget.
  • Utilising/applying for External Funding sources & local resources - Advice on how to reduce the reliance on HAF Funding and add value to your programme.
  • Be Creative with your Enrichment Activities – Using the theme of your main activity to inform your enrichment activity and vice versa.​
  • How to capture Impact Case Studies and Parent Feedback - sell yourself and capture the impact of your offer in simple but effective ways.

Bringing together existing and new HAPpy providers, the event will focus on sharing good practice and top tips to enhance delivery ahead of the next phase. Based on previous attendance trends and feedback we have shortened the day a little so all content will be delivered in the morning and the day will finish with an open networking lunch.
