The Family Holiday Association are the only national charity dedicated to providing short breaks and day trips for children and their families in desperate need of respite from the most terrible of circumstances. These include mental health issues, disability, severe and long-term illness, bereavement and domestic violence and affect all members of the family.

The charity offers short breaks for families (usually 2 or 3 nights) in a caravan at the British seaside and provides funding for day trips, which typically involve a simple day out at the beach, a local tourist attraction or museum.

All the families are referred to the charity by professionals in the community, such as teachers and social workers, and other charities such as Barnardo’s and Shelter.

For many of the children they help, a seaside break offers the chance to paddle in the sea, build a sandcastle or fly a kite for the very first time. For the families it can offer hope and a sense of optimism that will last long after their break is over. The joy of simply seeing other people smile can lift them out of their everyday cares and worries, and enrich their lives forever.

Abuse ruins childhood, but it can be prevented.

That’s why we’re here. That’s what drives all our work, and that’s why - as long as there’s abuse - we will fight for every childhood.

We help children rebuild their lives, and we find ways to prevent abuse from ruining any more. So when a child needs a helping hand, we’ll be there.

When parents are finding it tough, we’ll help. When laws need to change, or governments need to do more, we won’t give up until things improve.

And they will improve, because we can all play a part in the fight for every childhood. Big or small - through supporting our work, or simply believing, respecting and listening to children - there’s something each of us can do to make things better for children.

Abuse changes childhood. But so can we.
