The Family Holiday Association â€“ a review of 2005
Do you remember your last holiday? It probably wasn’t that long ago and you may well be planning your next one. For most of us an annual holiday is something that we take for granted; we always have one. But for hundreds of thousands of families a holiday is a necessity that they simply cannot afford. For some even a day-trip is beyond their means.
To help as many families as we can we offer different types of holidays to suit differing needs. Holiday centres: with our partners Haven, Butlins and British Holidays we provide one-week, self-catering holidays in chalets and FHA caravans at UK seaside resorts. This is our most popular holiday option.
Holidays are good for us. They give us something to look forward to, let us relax and unwind, allow us to make new friends, experience new things and recharge our batteries. In fact holidays are essential for our physical and emotional well-being. After a holiday life’s problems may often seem easier to face.
A society in which the quality of family life is enhanced through equitable access to high value rest and recreation regardless of disadvantage or poverty.
Our mission Direct grant: a one-off contribution towards any type of holiday. Families chose their own holiday destination and book the most convenient dates, for example a stay in a privately rented cottage or a visit to relatives. Short break: we offer three or four-night stays in selfcatering accommodation at selected UK holiday parks. Short breaks particularly suit families who are not able to go away for a whole week due to caring or work commitments.
We all need holidays Poverty is only one of the reasons preventing many families from taking a much-needed break. Longterm illness, chronic depression, family break-up, disability, unemployment or recent trauma can all mean that a family cannot take a holiday. Sadly it is often those struggling to cope in the most difficult circumstances and who cannot get away that would benefit the most.
To work in partnership with others to promote the quality of family life for those parents and children who experience disadvantage as a result of poverty through the provision of and by promoting access to holidays and other recreational activities.
The Family Holiday Association The FHA is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to providing holidays to disadvantaged children and their families. Every year we send hundreds of families struggling to cope with difficult circumstances on much-needed breaks. All the families we support are trying to manage on a low income and have not had a holiday for at least four years – in fact many have never had a family holiday.
Last minute break: occasionally companies, such as MasterSun Holidays, offer us holidays at short notice, either in the UK or overseas. This type of holiday suits families who are able to travel with only a few days’ notice. Group holidays: we offer one-off contributions towards holidays or day trips for a group of families, who organise the break themselves. We encourage families to become involved in choosing and organising their trip, and we also contribute towards holiday expenses, such as travel and treats for the children.
We believe that everyone regardless of disadvantage should be able to enjoy family life through access to holidays and other recreational activities. Our main objectives are to: ● increase the number of families that gain access to holidays ● research and promote the value of holidays for families experiencing disadvantage ● increase awareness of the scale and scope of the problem of lack of access to holidays.
A staggering 1 in 3 families cannot afford a one-week break away from home and 1 in 5 cannot even afford a day trip.
In 2005 we gave the Boveys a weekâ€™s holiday in Skegness.
Set in beautiful surroundings, families were able to participate in many different activities provided by a team of qualified trainers, therapists and crèche workers. We found that such breaks were particularly successful for the children, and many families made lasting friendships too. We have shared this model with social work departments around the UK.
In the beginning Pat and Joan Laurance founded the FHA 30 years ago. As a young couple in the mid-1950s they were struggling to cope with unemployment, their child’s illness and a recent bereavement. A friend lent them his seaside cottage, and they were able to take a break, forget all their worries for a short time, unwind and have fun together as a family. They realised just how much the holiday had helped them and in 1975 set up the charity to help disadvantaged families have desperately needed holidays.
● Another very successful initiative is the recent purchase of our own FHA caravans at several seaside resorts across the UK. These caravans mean we can accommodate even more families during the peak holiday season in high quality accommodation at a lower cost to the charity. First-hand experience of managing holiday caravans is proving extremely useful and helping us to improve our services even more.
At the start Pat and Joan ran the charity from the spare bedroom of their North London home. In their first year they helped 19 families. Since then the charity has grown into the national organisation it is today – helping over 1,000 families annually.
● More recently we have forged strong relationships with other similar organisations to help even more families. We are also researching the benefits of holidays to inform our important advocacy work.
Celebrating 30 years This year marked the FHA’s 30th anniversary; the charity has come a long way from its small beginnings. Since 1975 we have helped nearly 25,000 disadvantaged families have much-needed holidays – families struggling with grinding poverty and poor housing, chronic illness, disability, depression and family break-up. In that time we have undertaken some groundbreaking projects. Here are just a few of our achievements. ● Our Time2Care programme to mark the millennium. Over a two-year period we were able
to give almost 2,500 children living in care a fun-filled week’s break away. For many of these children it was their first ever holiday, and gave them a chance to develop more confidence and self-esteem. ● We developed our Family Well-Being Break model during a successful two-year pilot project. After realising that sometimes families are under such great pressure that a holiday can add even more stress, we offered a different type of break: a relaxing week’s holiday in a supported environment.
This year we commissioned more research from the Policy Research Bureau. Using the concept of social tourism, our aim was to find out more about the provision of holidays for families in need in the UK. Social tourism is the inclusion of people living on a low income in holiday and leisure activities – an idea that is familiar in the rest of Europe but relatively unknown in the UK. The research found that over 7 million people in the UK miss out on a basic holiday because of poverty and 2.5 million children live in families that can’t even afford a day trip. While both the Department of Work and Pensions and the Government's Social Exclusion Unit use the lack of a one-week break as an indicator of poverty, the UK has some way to go before access to holidays for disadvantaged families is an integral part of social welfare policy.
‘The children loved the beach. They had never seen the sea or sand before, so we spent every day we could there. We walked along the beach holding hands, looking in the rock pools and playing with the children in the sea. Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful family holiday.’ Mr and Mrs Cox, London The Cox family spent a week in an FHA caravan in Exmouth, Devon.
Family policy and programme forum
What the families think We ask all the families that we support and their welfare agents to complete feedback forms after their holiday. This helps us to improve the services we provide and informs our research. Again in 2005 families cited spending time together as a family, having a break from stresses and problems and getting away from home as the best things about their holidays. More than half of the families stated that their holiday was better than expected. Welfare agents felt that families had benefited through improved mental health and family relationships and were able to cope better on their return.
European Commission conference
Working in partnership European links This year we continued to strengthen our working relationships with similar European organisations: Vacances Ouvertes in France operates a well-established and nationallyrecognised holiday scheme that helps over 10,000 people every year to plan and enjoy a holiday; and Tourism Flanders, a government department in Belgium, provides thousands of individuals, families and groups access to holidays. We meet representatives of these organisations to discuss common areas of work, share information and
exchange ideas. This year the main topics included how to: ● improve our advice and information to increase families’ access to holidays ● simplify our feedback forms and compare data between Belgium, France and the UK We are also working on an international exchange project to provide summer holidays in France and Belgium during 2006 for UK families.
With our European partners, we were asked to give a presentation to the European Commission conference on social tourism. Prior to the meeting we produced a joint leaflet explaining the importance of holidays for disadvantaged families. Twenty-two European countries attended the conference and we heard many examples of longestablished holiday programmes from across the Continent. Our shared presentation was well received and there was widespread support for promoting social tourism across Europe for families on low incomes and/or in poverty.
Unison Welfare We continue to strengthen our partnership with Unison Welfare. In April we ran two workshops at Unison Welfare’s annual conference. With over 90 participants we were able to promote the FHA, which resulted in a Unison Welfare advertising campaign and more referrals to the FHA.
In February we held our second Family Forum entitled Putting social tourism on the agenda. With over 50 participants, including representatives from the Department of Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), Family Fund, Unison Welfare and Tourism for All, it was a great success. International speakers from Tourism Flanders, Cheque-Vacances and the Policy Research Bureau presented an overview of current policy and practice in Belgium, France and the UK, which stimulated much debate. The head of Unison Welfare was so enthused by our Forum she asked us to draft a proposal for her board of governors on a Cheque-Vacances pilot scheme for Unison members.
Holidays make happier, stronger families.
‘It is great to see a family who have struggled through numerous difficulties come back refreshed from a holiday. They could never have had a break away if it weren’t for the FHA.’ Welfare agent for Mr de Silva and his daughter, who had a week’s caravan holiday in Norfolk.
● Great North Run, Great South Run and FeelFine British 10K – combined raised £3,000 ● Yellow Umbrella Day – organised by Enjoy-work.com, 150 people walked or ran the 10k race and raised £2,200 ● ABTA Fun Run – held during the annual ABTA Convention in Orlando raised over £1,500. And thanks to the ‘ABTA Strollers’ and our sponsors the FHA’s work was highlighted and £3,500 was raised.
Travel industry challenge events The hockey challenge in February between tour operators and agents was a great match that raised a brilliant £2,000. Our thanks to corporate sponsors First Choice, Titan HiTours, AA Appointments and BCP Airport Parking. Participants in our ski challenge were put through their paces by Martin Nankoo, the British free style champion. The ski challenge was organised and generously sponsored by Mark Warner and Jackie Steadman, and raised a terrific £1,000.

Raising essential funds
Travel Tubbies More than 45 top names in the travel industry lost pounds to raise pounds for the FHA. After 16 weeks’ hard dieting, and thanks to support from Kunle Odetoyinbo, fitness consultant at SPARC, the Travel Tubbies lost a brilliant 150 lbs – and raised a tremendous £15,000.
Running for the FHA
After months of training a team of 24 runners from Inviron Limited, Ideal Holidays, Visit Britain and Citybond took up the challenge to run the 25th London Marathon in April. They all completed the course with good times and raised over £25,000.
Thanks to our sponsors ABTA, ABTA magazine, Adios, Slimming World, Universal and TTG for their support.
Running is a popular way to raise money and this year was no exception. To everyone who collected sponsorship and completed long-distance races on behalf of the charity, we’d like to say a big thank you and well done for such outstanding personal achievements.
Runners also competed in other races throughout the year including the: ● Women’s Hydroactive 5K Challenge – a team from Harp Wallen Executive Recruitment raised £2,000

The FHA is a charitable organisation that relies on the generosity and financial support of individuals, businesses and a range of grantgiving bodies
We have signed up to an exciting fundraising programme that involves recycling old mobile phones and used printer cartridges. Every phone and most cartridges are worth money and these funds can be donated easily to the FHA. Just a few or large quantities can be recycled. For more information call us on 020 7323 7292.
On-line giving This year saw a significant increase in the funds we raised via our website. Visitors donated almost £6,000. With more and more households gaining internet access, we predict this method of fundraising will continue to grow. In 2005 we received more than 60,000 hits to our website and visitors downloaded 11,000 documents, including 1,600 application forms. This year we have also added up-to-date information on fundraising events together with sponsorship tips and a training pack for runners. www.FamilyHolidayAssociation.org.uk
Corporate support We are grateful to be supported by many different companies, and their generosity is a crucial source of income for us. Thank you to all the companies who supported us in so many different ways throughout the year. In particular we would like to thank First Choice. Through their in-flight coin collections over the past few years they have raised in excess of £300,000. This year we helped them to introduce new FHA-branded plastic coin-collecting bags to make it even easier for passengers to donate their unwanted foreign coins.
Remember us in your Will
Most of us don’t want to think about making a Will, but it’s essential to make plans for your money after you die. After you have remembered your loved ones, why not consider leaving a legacy to the FHA?
We have four dedicated groups raising funds locally to send families under great stress in their area on a much-needed holiday. This year they organised many different events ranging from fêtes and coffee days to craft fairs and curry nights. Local fundraising is vital to us. If you would like to get involved with one of the existing groups, why not contact them (details below)? Or set up your own group? We also want to encourage help from established groups, for instance the Women’s Institute, Rotary Club and Round Table. If you are a member of such an organisation and would like to become an FHA local ambassador, please call us on 020 7436 3304. North London Friends Mr Pat Laurance 7 Childs Way London NW11 6XU
If you would like to adopt the FHA as your company charity or run a payroll giving campaign with staff please contact us at info@FamilyHolidayAssociation.org.uk or call our fundraising team on 020 7436 3304.
The proportion of our income that is made up of legacies can vary greatly from year to year. This year’s legacy income was almost entirely from one donor, a Mr Douglas Frost from Camberley in Surrey. Mr Frost left the charity a share of his estate and so far we have received £9,000 from the administrators of his Will. We are very grateful for his generosity.
No matter how big or small, it will help us to support families have a holiday they desperately need. Leaving a legacy towards the work of the Family Holiday Association helps change people’s lives for the better – could a memorial be more fitting?

‘This holiday was a wonderful break for us as a family and we have re-charged our batteries. It made me very happy to see my children enjoying themselves so much.’ Mrs Jordan, Sheffield The Jordan family had a week’s caravan holiday in Scarborough.
In 2005 the FHA helped over 1,200 families enjoy a break.
Early in the year I was invited to attend a seminar, jointly organised by the Children’s Play Council and Skills Active, to discuss the Children’s Act. This Act had been amended at the last minute to include reference to the need for access to recreation. In an informal discussion prior to the arrival of Margaret Hodge, the then Minister for Children, we considered the idea of defining what was meant by ‘recreation’.
Some thirty years ago our founders, Joan and Pat Laurance, recognised through personal difficulty just how beneficial a holiday can be for families who, for one reason or another, cannot ever take a break. Since then the charity has offered grants to more than 100,000 children and parents. These small grants make it possible for them to take a short break away from home: away from the pressures of their everyday lives.
From the FHA’s perspective recreation includes the concept of an annual one-week break away from home. And I had the opportunity to try and incorporate our views in the definition. To my surprise, I discovered that my colleagues, whose primary concern is ‘children’s recreation’, were not even considering the idea of a holiday as a key part of ‘recreation’. So many people just do not realise the huge benefits to everyone – the families and society in general – of simple holidays. Our advocacy work over the years has played an important role persuading people that holidays are a necessity for everyone.
The families we help are referred to us by welfare agencies. In other words they are the families recognised by society as underprivileged and in some way excluded. We are not talking about a glamorous week in the Canaries but a simple holiday: anything from a day at a British theme park to a week at Butlins. For many of our beneficiaries this family trip is the first time the children see the sea, and possibly the first time ever that the family is able to relax and spend valuable time together.
Of course the bulk of our work is sending families on holiday, and during the year we have worked very hard to ensure we help as many families as effectively as we can. Not only have we been able to give holidays to over 1,200 families, we have also organised discussion forums, funded research and met with other interested groups, both in the UK
and Europe, to ensure that our hands-on experience is used to assist the – literally – millions of families we can’t afford to help directly. Financially 2005 has been a very difficult year for the FHA with legacy income being particularly poor. The fundraising prospects for 2006 are much better, but we can only do the work we do with the terrific support of individual donors, trusts and companies. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped in any way – it is much appreciated.
John McDonald, Director
For thirty years we have been telling as many people as will listen that there are huge benefits from a simple, short holiday. We all know it. How good we feel on our return from a holiday is something we all take for granted. The benefits of a family holiday for those under pressure include increased self-esteem, a greater sense of family unity and better physical and mental wellbeing. And these benefits make sense for society – quality family time adds up to less demands on welfare agencies.
Despite the difficult financial environment I am pleased with the FHA’s progress over the past year and with the efforts of our dedicated staff led by our Director, John McDonald. Our committed council of trustees backs them up and we continue to enjoy the support of our founders Pat and Joan Laurance and our president Lady Mary Mumford DCVO. It is with great sadness, however, that I have to record the death after a long illness of Roger Liddiard, a trustee and our treasurer for the past six years. Our deepest condolences go to Tess, his wife, and his children.
