Our objectives

The key objectives of the Family Holiday Association are to:

  • Increase the number of families that gain access to holidays
  • Research and promote the value of holidays for families experiencing disadvantage and wider society
  • Increase awareness of the scale and scope of the problem of lack of access to holidays

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.

Our mission is to work in partnership with others to enhance the quality of family life for parents and children who experience disadvantage as a result of poverty, through the provision of and by promoting access to holidays and other recreational activities.

We’re doing more than ever

In 2019 we helped over 4,821 families, the second highest number we have ever achieved, and whilst the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis will have a huge impact on 2020, we are already working hard to make 2021 even more successful. We have only been able to achieve this thanks to the wonderful generosity of our supporters.

Our work doesn’t stop. For all the families we help and the many amazing stories we hear, there are even more children, parents and guardians who are crying out for a break away from home. We will never be able to help them all, but we can help as many as possible. So please, help us to help them by giving what you can. It really will make a difference.
