The Family Holiday Association

Grants for struggling families in the UK who have a child or children under the age of 18 for a short trip, group trip or a day out. It may be a simple day out or a few days in a caravan at the British seaside.

Please note: We cannot accept direct requests from a family, but we accept applications from a third party on a family's behalf, such as a health visitor or a social worker.

Last updated on 3 August 2021

Who is eligible?

Families with a child or children under the age of 18 and those who care for them - be they parents, grandparents, carers or older siblings who:

  • Are on a low income
  • Have not had a holiday in four years (unless there are exceptional circumstances)

How to apply?

Families cannot apply directly, but a third party, such as schools, charities, or social services, can apply on their behalf. They should apply on on the Family Holiday Association's website

Please note that the entire process from the moment an application is submitted to a family returning from holiday usually takes between two and six months, depending what time of year the application is made, and how far in advance a break is booked.
