Apply for a break

Autumn Breaks Now Available!

Autumn weekend caravan breaks 

We currently have new availability for weekend breaks at Haven, Butlins and Park Dean holiday parks throughout October and November. These great caravan breaks are suitable for families of all shapes, sizes, needs and locations across England, Scotland and Wales. Breaks take place over the weekend and are a great chance to get away for a few days this autumn before the winter sets in.

Applications are open now so head to the referrers area to fill in a short breaks application form and apply today! 

Key Workers

Give Them a Break was set up by a small group of volunteers from the travel industry last year to recognise the enormous contribution of key workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to give them something back.

The Give Them Break is being administered by the Family Holiday Association. We are providing breaks for families that have at least one adult who is a key worker in the family.

Do you have a family that has a key worker in it? Then head to the referrers area and fill in a short breaks application form today! 

Group trip funding – October half term & Christmas trips!

We have opened up applications again for our group trip funding program. Do you have a group of families that would benefit from a day out together this autumn? Simply head to the group trips section in the referrers area and fill in our simple funding application form for group trips. Breaks have to take place before the end of 2021 but with October half term, Halloween, bonfire night and plenty of opportunities to visit Santa coming up then now is great time to organise a day out for a deserving group of families.

Head to the referrers area to read more and apply now! 


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.

What breaks we have available changes on a regular basis. We open and close for applications for different break types periodically. To see what we currently have available, to be included in our regular e-shots that tell you what is currently on offer and to be able to apply for breaks or group trip funding, you will need to be registered as a referrer.
