Refugee Action applied for the places on behalf of a number of families through our Supporting Families Programme. This programme is designed for parents, carers and organisations to apply for part or fully-funded places for children at our camps across the UK. Each year we receive hundreds of applications from families for lots of reasons, including financial hardship, ill health or difficulties at home. For every 17 places booked, we provide a fully funded place for a family in need.
For Refugee Action, Kings Camps provides a much-needed service that provides respite for pressured families, and the opportunity for children to be active, have fun and learn together.
