Happy holidays Inspire Hope

We understand how much families need a break away from all the stresses and strains of childhood cancer. So many families say to us that they would love to spend precious time together, away from hospital and cancer treatments.

If you know a family who deserves a respite holiday or special day out, please email us advising the names and ages of all children and the child’s cancer type. Please also advise any special needs or requirements.

Please note some holidays are also available for children in remission and for recently bereaved families (up to 2 years following the loss of a child)

Holiday Grants

At the discretion of our trustees we do provide holiday grants of up to £500.00 per family. Priority is given to families given a poor prognosis and those who have endured long periods of time in hospital.

Travel Grants

If your family receive Housing Benefit, Disability Living Allowance and/or Income Support we may also be able to arrange to meet your travel costs.

Holidays on the English Riviera

The South West of England is beautiful in late Spring and the region offers an abundance of family attractions. They’ll be plenty of time to relax in a peaceful setting plus many of our holiday partners put on an array of evening entertainment.

Please email us for the weekly list of available holiday dates, or if booking 8 weeks in advance please let us know your holiday dates and we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.
