What’s it all about


Our aim is to help record numbers of families by the end of 2020

Summer sunshine at the beach… Exploring somewhere new… A simple few days away with the ones you love… We all know how much happier a break can make us feel.

But what if you’ve never had this opportunity? What if a severe illness or disability is making life painfully difficult? Or what if you are confronted with mental health problems or domestic violence on a daily basis?

So many families are trapped in terrible situations like these, and they desperately need our help. They need a reason to smile.

For over 40 years the Family Holiday Association, aided by professionals already supporting the families, has been changing the lives of those truly in need by offering them a short break or day out. We exist to give people relief from their stresses at home, to improve their wellbeing and help create cherished memories.

Donate a DayWe’ve got this far by working with people. By working in partnership with referrers, businesses, individual supporters and trusts and foundations. By talking to organisations and listening to feedback. By working together.

Sadly, there are so many more families that need our support. That’s why we’ve set ourselves a goal – to help record numbers of families annually by the end of 2020.

It’s ambitious, but by working together, we can reach our target and change even more lives.

Together, we can increase the number of lives changed for the better.

Together, we can give families a reason to smile.

Together, we can help families find sunshine through the rain.
