National Holiday Fund for Sick and Disabled Children
The National Holiday Fund for Sick and Disabled Children began in the spring of 1987 as the dream of a group of like-minded professional people.
- Each holiday is of two weeks duration with a group normally consisting of twelve children, each of whom is accompanies by a carer. In addition, there is an experienced group leader, a qualified Doctor, a physiotherapist and senior nurse.
- Only hotels that have been visited and vetted by the NHF's representatives are used. All the transport needs for the children of each groups are arranged before the holiday.
- Parents, guardians and carers of the children have an opportunity to take a much needed respite, knowing their children and having the best of care and continuity of medical attention while they are away from home. It also provides an opportunity to give extra or undivided attention to others in the family.
- All of the groups are fully insured with the children being individually assessed.
