If you are booking a HAF activity, you will need to give your child's precise date of birth and correct spell their name. This is so that it can be matched to their name and date of birth on the Free School Meals or referral list. This is done automatically on Eequ.

Everyone makes mistakes, so don't worry if you are declined. You will be able to edit these details and book again.

Why can't I edit the original booking?

Each booking is a declaration of important information that your council and provider rely on to ensure the needs of your child are met. We do not allow this to be edited by either party so that it can be referred to with confidence at any point in the future.

What will happen if I made a booking with an incorrect spelling or date of birth?

Your booking will probably be declined and you will be asked to follow these instructions to book again.
