Holiday breaks

Cancer Council Holiday Break ProgramDue to the financial hardship cancer places on families, it can become hard to afford a holiday when it's needed most.

Our Holiday Break Program provides families with a short break away at no cost so they can share quality time with loved ones, away from the hectic schedule of appointments and cancer treatments.

For some, it may be one of the few opportunities to spend valuable time together with family and/or close friends, providing lasting memories.

How can you help?

We need accommodation providers to donate time at their holiday properties when they're not in use.

As an accommodation provider, you can select what time of year suits best (which can be at non-peak times such as a few days mid-week or over a weekend mid-year) for minimal disruption to your occupancy. This small donation can make the world of difference to someone affected by cancer, and their family.

We could not offer this program without the generosity of our accommodation donors.

"We experienced a rollercoaster ride through a young friend of ours who had cancer. The experience of dealing with her diagnosis and journey touched us greatly. We wanted to do something to help. Being a part of the Holiday Break Program has enabled us to provide short breaks to families experiencing difficult times, and so far the positive feedback has been overwhelming." — Nina Caple, accommodation donor
