Family Holiday Association
The Family Holiday Association is the only national charity dedicated to providing seaside breaks and day trips for families coping with some of the toughest challenges life can bring.
We help UK families struggling with problems such as severe and long-term illness, bereavement, mental health issues, disability and domestic violence. Evidence shows that our work results in stronger, healthier and happier families and communities.
Each family we support is referred to us by someone already working with them in a supporting role. Our referral network includes teachers, health visitors, social workers and other charities such as Barnardo`s and Shelter. By working with referrers, we can be sure that the funds we raise help the families who will benefit most.
The short breaks we offer enable individual families to spend a few nights in a caravan at a holiday park at the British seaside. Day trips are typically a simple day out at the
seaside, a local tourist attraction or museum.
The majority of the families we help have never before been on a family holiday.
Every day we are reminded of how a simple break from daily struggles can be life-changing for the families we work with.
Because a little sunshine goes a long way.
