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 2023, we helped 1,107 families to enjoy a UK holiday.
1,107 families, made up of 4,698 people (families come in all shapes and sizes), enjoyed a holiday. While 86% of those were in England (where the charity received the most funding to provide breaks). 46% 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.
