The Youth Hostel Association is offering a free two-night stay with meals in Youth Hostels in England and Wales to families struggling with financial hardship, disability, long-term illness, bereavement, homelessness or other challenging circumstances.
One break per year at a YHA Youth Hostel (a list of participating hostels is on the website) is available to families with up to two adults and children aged 2 – 18 years where the annual household income is below £25,000.
Priority will be given to applications involving children and young people who are experiencing exceptionally challenging lives, or who are facing a crisis or emergency situation and as a result of these situations are experiencing financial hardship on a daily basis.
All the Youth Hostels available within the programme are located within city, rural and coastal areas that are easily accessible by public transport. Families will be provided with a private room and meals throughout their stay.
