  • Live in the Royal Borough of Kingston
  • Be over 18
  • Have a long term and substantial health condition and/or impairment that is likely to last – or has lasted – twelve months or more, which severely affects your daily life. “Impairment” includes people with mobility and sensory impairments, learning disabilities, communication and mental health difficulties and other, invisible impairments

Applicants must

  • Not apply for a grant after the holiday has been taken.
  • Not make more than one application in any financial year (April – March).
  • Be able to supply evidence of the holiday cost.

All applications are subject to the availability of funds (we cannot guarantee to fully fund all of your holiday) and receipt of a completed application form with supporting documents.

As applications will be considered by a grants panel once a month, it is essential that your application is received at least 21 days in advance of the start of your holiday. The grants panel is due to meet on the following dates:
