Who qualifies?

Serving and Ex-RAF personnel who are disabled, or whose dependent is disabled, can apply for an accessible holiday with the Disabled Holiday Trust.

Our eligibility criteria for the Disabled Holiday Trust are: 

The qualifying person has a disability that prevents them from using ‘standard’ hotel accommodation and meets one of the below:

  • Be registered blind.
  • Receive the higher rate of DLA/PIP Mobility.
  • Receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement.
  • Receive an on-going Guaranteed Income Payment for having a permanent disability causing an inability or significant difficulty in walking. 
  • Receive Attendance Allowance. 

We offer holiday accommodation free of charge to those who meet the disability criteria and are on a means tested benefit.

Means tested benefits include:

  • Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income based job seekers allowance
  • Housing benefit
  • Working and child tax credits

This must be evidenced by 3 months of bank statements or an entitlement letter (less than 3 months old) in line with the Funds welfare policy.

Those who are not on a means tested benefit will be asked to contribute a nominal amount towards the cost of the holiday.
It is a condition that the qualifying person goes on the holiday.
