Helping Families Make Happy Memories

About us

“When we went swimming both our children loved it....every part that made my little boy happy made me happy and there were so many good memories” TGAF Family Holiday Feedback

Our founders' childhood memories are based upon happy family holidays.  Many families today do not get the chance to create these memories, with over 2.17m families unable to afford a holiday. 

Poverty is one of the biggest issues impacting families today in the UK with 2.1m children in poverty. We want to help some of them create happy family memories through holidays.

We were founded in January 2020 to benefit families in poverty and create positive memories through holidays. We are focused initially on helping families in Buckinghamshire, Beds (Luton), Milton Keynes and the  Isle of Wight working with local support services and child services to identify families to support. We are also supporting families in poverty impacted by Coronavirus

“Absolutely loved watching the children have so much fun in a completely different environment, they loved it, We loved it, thank you” TGAF Family Holiday Feedback

Since starting our family holidays in 2021 we have now booked almost 200 family holidays and we plan to keep expanding this with the support of our partners and grants and donations. Our goal is to provide 70+ family holidays in 2023 and create even more family memories
