Caravan Holiday

by Christina Wilhelm

I have three children aged 4,7,11.

I have their father with me now who is also my carer.

I have been put on enhanced PIP until 2035 and my sight is working a wee bit in the one eye but is blurry now. And my other eye doesn't work and I have to wear Sun glasses and use a guide stick or cane.

We love walking out dogs and treasure hunting going to the seaside and looking for rocks and things.

We love staying in a caravan and or lodge or tent.

I can't afford to pay for every one up front and I can't seem to find anything with in our price range. Thank you


Hi Christina,

Depending on where you live in Scotland these might be useful to you.

The Action Group covering Edinburgh, Lothians and Falkirk have a caravan at Seton Sands Holiday Village, Longniddry. Prices start from £185 a week.

For more information email:

The Salvation Army offer a free caravan at Haggerston Castle for ‘families in need of a break from their normal environment’

For more information email:

Gateway Scotland have free chalets in Argyll for families who are supporting a family member through a serious illness or disability. You will need to be referred by another agency such as social services or a support group.

I do hope this helps and that you manage to get the break your family needs.
