The Family Holiday Association is the only national charity dedicated to providing British seaside breaks and day trips for families struggling with some of the toughest challenges life can bring.
For over 40 years they have helped families access much needed short breaks and day trips in the U.K. to provide vital relief. The issues facing those that they help are wide ranging from mental health, alcohol or drug misuse within the family, unemployment, debt, domestic violence and disability or ill health. These problems can have a negative effect on a child’s emotional well being and behaviour but even a short break can improve behaviour at school, behaviour at home, an improvement in school attendance and self-confidence.
