Breaks for Kids

Breaks for Kids is a discretionary fund in support of young people living challenging lives.

Without this funding they may be excluded from the experiences this trip provides.

Funding may be available for schools/groups who have a provisional booking with a Youth Hostel in England or Wales and who have yet to pay the balance on their stay. Applications must be received at least eight weeks in advance of your arrival date and grants are deducted from your final bill.

Before completing this application, please check:

  • Have you made a provisional booking with a hostel?
  • Is your stay at least 8 weeks away?
  • Is the balance of your stay outstanding?
  • Do you know the number of children that require funding?

At YHA we believe that every young person should have the opportunity to travel to a new place, learn vital new life skills and discover new environments. We are delighted that this year we have been able to support more young people than ever before. This unprecedented demand does mean that we will now only be able to make awards in exceptional circumstances for the remainder of this financial year. Applications for next year will now be reviewed in April 2017.

If you have an urgent application or queries please contact bursaries@yha.org.uk Of course, if you or anyone you know is in a position to make a contribution to our Breaks for Kids scheme, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

YHA wants to understand the number of additional students who will benefit from our support if Pupil Premium replaces the Free School Meals eligibility criteria. For this visit, please indicate how many more children in this group receive Pupil Premium and would have qualified?
