Thank you for your application for Breaks for Kids funding. Breaks for Kids is YHA’s discretionary fund which supports young people living challenging lives. 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 financial 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 trips during the 2017/18 financial year will only be reviewed in exceptional circumstances. Please email [email protected] with your contact details and a brief overview of your reasons and we will respond as soon as possible.

We appreciate your patience.

Applications are considered on the basis of:

  • The number of children in the group who are entitled to free school meals
  • Permanent residents of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • Applications must be received at least eight weeks prior to your stay
  • Funding is subject to availability
Thank you for applying
