Supporting the Family Holiday Association
For over 30 years, the Family Holiday Association has been working to provide short breaks for the most underprivileged families in our communities. They help families in desperate circumstances: those dealing with disability, bereavement, poverty, mental health problems, inadequate housing, or abuse.
Each family that is granted a break will spend up to a week in a caravan in a UK seaside town. As well as providing the holidays, the Family Holiday Association conducts research into and promotes knowledge of the benefits of holidays.
Families are referred to the Family Holiday Association by a welfare agent who could be a GP, social worker, teacher or anyone with knowledge of, and concern for, the family’s well-being. Families that are referred are typically on a low income and will not have had a holiday in over four years.
These simple holidays can help strengthen relationships within the family and give family members a fresh perspective, providing them with the motivation to make positive changes to their lives.

How you can help
We ask our customers to donate £2 when they book their holiday. This donation is automatically added to your booking, but is entirely voluntary, so please tell us if you don't wish to make this donation.
Where your money goes
We’ve been raising money for the Family Holiday Association since 2009, when Simon Allan, our Managing Director, challenged us with raising enough money to buy the FHA a new mobile home.
In 2013, Simon presented the FHA with keys to a brand new mobile home, based at Craig Tara holiday park in Ayrshire, allowing 30 families a year to take a much needed break.
Thank you. Your support really does make a difference.
