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.

"The reason we decided to donate time to people – and their loved ones – going through the cancer journey is because we have seen firsthand some dear friends going through this and how important it is to have some time out at this very trying time. I have also witnessed, through a previous business and in my time as an oncology nurse, that it is imperative that people make the most of the time whilst they are feeling well. If we can provide a getaway in a lovely location where people can relax and also enjoy some of the activities that we have to offer, then we feel happy that we have done something small to help a few people." — Anne and Sean, Holiday Property Owners
