The Youth Hostels Association (YHA) has announced that the Challenging Lives Support Programme will open for applications on the 1st March 2018.
The Youth Hostel Associations breaks programmes aim to reach young people and families with the most challenging lives and provide them with life changing experiences, they create unique opportunities for people from all backgrounds to experience amazing places, share extraordinary journeys and take a different path through life. The Challenging Lives programme aims to reach those children and young people who are or have recently experienced life threatening medical or mental health conditions, bereavement or homelessness. Support is also available to those living with a disability or life threatening medical conditions or who take on a caring role.
Organisations such as schools, registered charities, community and voluntary organisations who work with young people who face these challenges can apply for a 2-night break package at one of the YHA’s iconic destinations.
