Organisations working with children and young people who live in deprived areas can apply for a 2-night break package through the Youth Hostel Association’s (YHA) Challenging Places Support Programme.
Applications can be submitted by schools, registered charities, community and voluntary organisations on the behalf of any individual or group of young people who meet the YHA’s criteria. Schools and groups can reapply annually as long as the application is for a different group of young people.
To be eligible the children or young persons must be between the ages of 8 and 18 and must live in an rea recognised as deprived (please see the YHA website for further details about which areas qualify).
Applications can be submitted at any time.
