THHN holidays are offered to a wide scope of families affected by illness or bereavement and are listed below:
- Families who have children with serious illness – terminal, life threatening/limiting.
- Bereaved families who have lost a child or parent – where children are involved.
- Families who have a terminally ill parent, with children under 18 years of age.
You can not apply for holidays yourself, holiday applications must be made by a registered charity support worker, NHS medical professional or social worker who will then refer you directly to us once your application has been successful.
Holidays will be awarded up to two years after a bereavement or up to two years following final treatment for an illness.
Holidays are for immediate family members only.
Please understand that all holidays are donated by business owners through their own good will.
We can usually only offer one THHN holiday per family. Referees can email us if there are exceptional circumstances, for example a significant worsening in prognosis, to see if we can help.
We can only include immediate family members in a free THHN holiday; please do not include extended family on the application form. Single parent families may however include an extra adult if needed. Assistance in finding accommodation for extended family members at their own expense can be discussed with our holiday liaison officer whilst processing the application.
