Short Family Break Application

If you have a long term sick or disabled child (any long term illness or disability will be considered for support), we are able to offer your family a short break at our holiday home at Butlins in Skegness. This will be on a self-catering basis and there is no hire charge, but the holiday will be subject to a £100 security bond which will be returned at the end of your holiday.

Please note we ask for a £50 donation towards the cost of preparing and cleaning of the caravan for your stay, this also includes the provision of bedding for the duration of your visit.

This application is subject to the application terms and conditions, which can be downloaded by clicking here, the YCT holiday terms and conditions and the Butlins guest terms and conditions.
