Breaks for front-line workers and families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic

A well deserved free break with YHA

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Project90 – our special 90th anniversary project to give 900 young people with challenging lives a life-changing adventure with YHA – has been extended to include breaks for NHS and other keyworker families, and families impacted by the crisis for whom a funded break will make all the difference.

Applications for our free breaks for key workers are now closed. Thank you to everyone who registered their interest.

could help a low-income family create happy memories on a break away, after so long without access to green space
