The Long Term Impact of a Holiday

Holidays open up new possibilities. There’s time to reconnect and try new things, fly a kite and make happy memories together.

Holidays are more than feeling the sun on your face. They make a lifetime of difference. 

In 2022, we helped more families than ever before to enjoy a UK holiday.

1,854 families, made up of 7,870 individuals (families come in all shapes and sizes), enjoyed a holiday. While 65% of those were in England (where the charity received the most funding to provide breaks). 48% of families we worked with had never had a holiday before. 

When we say holidays give confidence and hope for the future, we know this because it shows in some of the feedback statistics we collect.
