First offers of the season sent out
Over the last couple of weeks, offers for short breaks have started to be sent out to families via their referrer.
We start taking applications in November, but spend the final two months of the calendar year talking to referrers, assessing applications and preparing for the year ahead.
We continue to accept applications for short breaks until we have allocated them all; in recent years we’ve stopped taking new applications around May / June time.
Programme Manager John Kinnear commented: “This is always an exciting time of the year as we start to send out the first offer letters. We know from feedback that the benefit to families starts as soon as they learn they have been awarded a break. Having something positive to look forward to is important for young and old and a significant part of creating happy memories that can last a lifetime.”
If you are working with a family who would benefit from a break, please get in touch. Details about the breaks we offer, our criteria and how to become a referrer can be found here.
