Our Supporting Families programme aims to make a difference to the lives of children from a range of difficult or disadvantaged family circumstances, including financial hardship, terminal illness, bereavement and other challenging family situations.

By offering subsidised places on our camps, we seek to improve the well-being of the child and their family. It’s an opportunity for them to experience a week of fun and structured activity. It also offers the family a respite opportunity and financial assistance with a fun and engaging activity during the school holidays.

How your money makes a difference

Since 1991, we’ve provided assisted places to more than 10,000 children and families in a range of difficult circumstances.

We establish partnerships with local schools, hospices, palliative care units, social workers and community support workers to ensure that our Supporting Families places are awarded to families and children who are in real need.

Georgia’s Story

Georgia is one of a family of 5 children who live alone with their mother who has been diagnosed terminally ill with cancer. In 2009 Georgia and her siblings were given the opportunity to attend Kings Camps through the Supporting Families programme and the experience transformed their summer holidays.

Georgia and her siblings had lots of fun on the activity camps and the experience enhanced their self esteem, gave them the confidence boost they needed and respite from their worries and stressful life. Her Mum was also able to relax knowing that her children were well cared for during the summer holidays.

Sadly Georgia’s mum died and the family are now being cared for by their elder sister, Amy aged 22. Through the Supporting Families programme, Georgia and her family are hoping to return to Kings Camps and catch up with the friends they made last year, and give their elder sister the respite she deserves.
