Holiday grants

Holiday grants help towards the cost of holidays, trips and short breaks for people aged 18 and over who have cystic fibrosis.

Our helpline can provide information on companies that may offer reasonably priced travel insurance, and advice on how to minimise the cost of oxygen. We advise you to organise travel insurance and oxygen as far in advance as possible.

Apply for a holiday grant from the Trust

Please note we are unable to accept applications where the holiday has already taken place or takes place before our panel meets to assess your application. If you are unsure about this, or if you are unexpectedly facing last-minute costs such as for oxygen for flights, please contact our helpline on or 0300 373 1000 to discuss whether we can help. 

We have limited funds available for holiday grants, and we have to prioritise those most in need of a holiday. Please provide as much information as possible when applying for a grant. Please note, you can only apply for a holiday grant once every two years. Applications are assessed by our independent panel every two months.

If you or the person you are applying for has CF and is over 18, please complete our application form to apply for a holiday grant. If you have any questions or need any help to complete the form, please contact our helpline on 0300 373 1000 or email

The next grant panel meetings take place on: 27 September 2018 (deadline for applications: 11 September) and 15 November 2018 (deadline for application: 6 November). Grant panel meetings will be held in January, March, May, July, September and November.
