Grants for holidays

The majority of families that need help have never been away before.

A simple break from a stressful situation can create precious memories, strengthen bonds and develop a new sense of optimism.

In this section, you can find out more about who can help you and what they can help with.

Family holiday association

Our vision is for a society where everyone has the opportunity to have a holiday each year. We know the difference that time away from home, work and our daily lives can make. It can transform how we feel and how we act.

We provide families with their holiday accommodation and can sometimes make a contribution towards their travel costs. The majority of breaks take place between Easter and the end of October.

In exceptional circumstances we may be able to make a financial contribution towards another type of holiday if our usual short breaks are unsuitable for a family.

We can provide funding for organisations to run trips for families, such as a day out at the seaside or a few days at an outdoor centre.
