600,000 pounds is the budget of the support program for British families who would like to go on vacation, but cannot afford it. In this way, the government will finance 800 trips for people who have not been on vacation for at least four years.
England for All will target families struggling with the effects of the pandemic. You can apply for a £ 450 grant from a fund that has been set up by the Department for Digitization, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) in collaboration with Family Holiday Charity and VisitEngland. It covers expenses for accommodation, travel and food, according to Travel Weekly, the UK travel industry website.
The aim of the project is to relieve the mental burden of people who are going through difficult times and need to escape from everyday life. VisitEngland has partnered with holiday parks to provide participants with free on-site activities.
Research by Family Holiday Charity has shown that short breaks can have benefits children are more likely to go to school later, feel less isolated and more socially involved. Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston emphasizes that holidays are an opportunity to rest, spend time together and feel better. However, for many families it is financially impossible to take a break. The program is therefore a support for such people, but also for the tourism and hotel industry.
