The Family Holiday Association

How the charity works
The Family Holiday Association is the only national charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged families access holidays.

Who do we help?
The charity helps to provide breaks away from home for economically and socially deprived children and their families. Typically, the families are affected by severe financial hardship and with extra difficulties such as long-term or terminal illness, violence or abuse, depression, disability or overcrowded and inadequate housing.  Currently, the charity hopes to help about 2,000 families this year - around 9,000 individuals - to have what is often their first ever family holiday.

How do we help?
By providing grants: the Family Holiday Association makes a modest grant towards the cost of a break.

By lobbying and campaigning: the charity is involved in raising the profile of its work, and in raising awareness with the public and government of the benefits of holidays for those in need.

By working with others: the Family Holiday Association works with local authorities, GPs, social workers, voluntary and statutory bodies, the media, and other like-minded agencies both here and in the rest of Europe.
