Family Fund for holiday vouchers

by Caroline Collinslon
(London)

The Family Fund gave us holiday vouchers to take my children on holiday.

They also provided a single bed and bedding as my son has bed wetting problems that have really got out of control. This has made his life very miserable because he can't go on school journeys and can't stay away from home.

ANSWER:

That's great news Caroline. The Family Fund can help in all sorts of ways.

Don't forget that you apply again in a years time.

All the best

Re holiday vouchers
by: Miss dean

I'm looking to take my son of 9 who has diabetes insulin controlled and has problems with bed wetting on an holiday.

It would be nice to get a little help with so he can have dreams come true. We cannot afford to take the whole family our last holiday was to Devon Cliffs last Easter in which he loved so much he wants to go back.

Can you help?

ANSWER:

Hi do have a look at the criteria for the Family Fund to see if they are able to help you before applying.

Do also have a look at the charities listed in the Holidays section of the Disability Grants website as your son may be eligible for funding from another charity. It just depends on your individual circumstances.

Good luck and I hope your son gets his dream.

Please can you tell me if the vouchers can be used on-line .travel agents are so expensive.

ANSWER:
Family Fund will be able to advise on this but usually they can only be spent with certain operators.


Travel by Inspire Vouchers

What is the value of Travel by Inspire Vouchers for 2 adults and one child?

ANSWER:

I don't believe there is a set amount as families are looked at individually and it depends on their level of need.

Hi I have a little boy that has asd and I need a grant to take him away as I'm on low income.

But is it only Thomas Cook you can get the grants for or can you chose witch airline you take ?? Xx

ANSWER:

Hi Becki
This is the quote from the Family Fund website....

"A direct payment or travel card from a supplier towards a family break. We work with Butlins, Haven and Travel by Inspire for family breaks. Travel by Inspire can arrange flights, UK breaks and overseas breaks with many of the most popular travel companies."

Hope this helps your query.

Best wishes

Holidays
by: mandy

Hi does the Family Fund help if its the adult who gets Disability Living Allowance as we've not had a holiday now for 4 years. My daughter, myself and her father could really do with a break.

ANSWER:

Hi Mandy,
I'm sorry the Family Fund is only for children and young people.

Have a look at the grants available to adults in the "Adults" and "Holidays" sections of the Disability Grants website. Good luck!

Thomas Cook Voucher's
by: clare

Just like to say the Family Fund are wonderful. They have helped me over the years for family holidays.

I have a daughter with Down's Syndrome and a daughter with Hydrocephalus. I've been unable to work for years now and their vouchers really do help our family have quality time together.

I apply on-line and it's so quick and simple.

ANSWER:

Fantastic feedback Clare - it's so important for families to have time away together away from the stresses of everyday demands at home.
