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:

  • Schools

  • Children / Family Services

  • Child Care Centres

  • Hospitals

  • Community Organisations

  • Not-For-Profits

The first ever holidays are fully funded (ie accommodation, food, transport, tourist attraction visits).

All holidays are to locations in Australia.
