Schools, charities, and community organisations seeking to offer breaks for disadvantaged children, young people and their families can apply for support for a residential stay in England and Wales. The Youth Hostel Association’s Breaks Programme offers bursaries to primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, schools offering alternative provision and colleges to help meet the costs of a residential trip. The programme also offers fully or part-funded residential trips to groups of young people and families facing challenges that make travel and adventure difficult to access. They are arranged via application or referral from partner organisations including charities, community groups and home education networks. No application deadline is given.
