Family Fund for holiday vouchers

by Caroline Collinslon

If you have any queries about applying for a Family Fund grant or want to check on the progress of your grants please contact the Family Fund directly through their online form.


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.


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

First time applied
by: Nicci

Hi there, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the vouchers I received to buy my son a bunk bed.

It has helped so much. He has now been sleeping in his own room tor much longer which means I'm getting a better nights sleep!

I felt so embarrassed applying but a lovely woman came out to assess us and she made me feel so much better about it as I thought others deserved the fund more than us.

But she had me realise every family is unique and struggles in different ways.

I couldn't thank her or family fund enough!

Hi, I can't see where I need to complete a form for the holiday fund to see if I meet the criteria.


Hi Tara, you need to make a general application to the Family Fund first to see if you fulfill their grant criteria.

hi I have a child who has Learning Disabilities.

I have applied to Family Fund once and they'd were very helpful with helping my son with sensory things.

I re applied again few days ago and they have accepted our request but I was thinking can I change and and ask for a holiday instead.


Hi Anessa do give the Family Fund a ring and explain why a holiday would benefit your family at this time. They are usually very flexible.

Family Fund are great

Hi Family Fund has helped my family get away on holiday for the last 8 years.

My son has many disabilities and we've recently been told he has diabetes. We've never been able to take him in aeroplanes as his doctor said no but we've been told that he will be able to go next year abroad so thank you Family Fund without you a lot of family's can't get a holiday.

Hi. I was wondering how to apply for holiday vouchers? I had applied for a tv and clothes/shoes for my son but I got rejected. My son really wants to go to Butlins Skegness and stay in a caravan. If I receive the vouchers can I use them at Butlins?

I'm not sure but I would imagine as you had been rejected for other items it is unlikely the Family Fund would consider holiday vouchers.
Do contact Family Fund to double check on this.

Hi my son has just been diagnosed with ADHD.

As a single parent on low income we haven't managed to get away for short breaks ...would my son be entitled to family holiday vouchers.

I've just getting his DLA.


Hi you would need to make an application to the Family Fund - do check to see if you fulfil their criteria before applying.

Also have a look at the Holidays section on the Disability Grants website as you may find other opportunities for your family.

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?


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.

Online booking
by: Louise waugh

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

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?


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

Hoilday Grant

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


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

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.


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.


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

Family Fund Vouchers
by: Nicola

The Family Fund provides grants for a lot of different things for children with disabilities.

We received Thomas Cook vouchers to the value of £500. This means we shall be taking our daughter away abroad.

Its easy to claim, and no silly hard forms to fill in.


Absolutely, Nicola - once you have completed the paperwork and been approved the process of applying is so simple.

Do have a lovely break with your daughter.
