We support families with a child or children under the age of 18 and those who care for them (ie parents, grandparents, carers or older siblings).
The two criteria are:
The family has never been on a holiday, not even a weekend away.
The family is prepared to share their story with others.
Families cannot apply for a break directly.
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 before, during and after their first ever holiday.
Referees work for a variety of organisations including:
Children / Family Services
Child Care Centres
The first ever holidays are for six days and are fully funded (ie accommodation, food, transport, tourist attraction visits).
