Apply for a break

COVID-19: In line with the official Government guidance to cease all non-essential contact and travel we have taken the difficult decision to immediately suspend all our booked and planned breaks until the end of June 2020.

We will keep the developing situation under review over the coming months. We have emailed all referrers with a family / families with breaks booked before then, or if we’ve made an offer of a break.

As with many charities across the country, the Family Holiday Association has been significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the trustees have taken the difficult decision to furlough the majority of staff including all staff on the Grants and Projects team. 

This means that we will not be processing referrer registrations, assessing applications or making any changes to bookings for the foreseeable future.


How to Apply for a Break

All families must be referred by someone working with them in a supporting role. This ensures we assist those who most need our help and means the families get the support they need to prepare for their break.

Our Referrers work or volunteer for a variety of organisations including schools, children/family services, children’s centres, other charities such as Barnardos or Shelter, refuges and domestic abuse support teams, and housing associations.

If you want to register with us as a referrer, please visit our Advice For Referrers page first. To register with us as a referrer, visit the Referrer’s Area. We will get back to you with your log-in details or a request for more information within one working day. Please make sure you have read our Frequently Asked Questions and our “What Happens Next?” pages.
