As the RAF’s oldest friend, the RAF Benevolent Fund knows how stressful Service life can be. Deployment, separation and continuous moves can all add to pressures at work and home. To help, the Fund is offering subsidised breaks across the UK to serving personnel and their families. All properties are available to RAF families at the affordable rate of between £36 and £66 a night.

The breaks will run on selected dates during the 2020 Easter and summer holidays and will offer an opportunity to rent a caravan or cottage in many popular UK locations. Priority will be given to serving personnel and families with a welfare need.

Leon Hart, Head of Respite and Care at the RAF Benevolent Fund, said:

“The wellbeing breaks are just one way the Fund supports the serving RAF community and their families. Quality time together as a family or couple is precious and invaluable and by providing these breaks, the Fund aims to support that.”

As well as UK-wide destinations, the Fund provides welfare breaks on the south coast at our seaside cottages and apartments in Rustington.

Leon added:

“The accommodation in our seaside cottages and apartments is first class. We hope we have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible.”

The cottages Seacot and Shencot and apartments Harlequin House and Jesters Court are near to Princess Marina House, the Fund’s care and respite facility. This means assistance with any problems is close at hand for guests – staff can even bring visitors meals if they want a break from cooking!
