Families’ Activity Breaks (FAB) is a non-public funded, tri-service charity (registered charity no. 1178108), providing fun and challenging activity camps around the UK for bereaved Military families.
Families’ Activity Breaks
If your child is aged up to 18 years old or under (on the first day of camp) and has suffered the loss of a loved one who was serving in the Armed Forces, then you may be eligible for a FAB camp. The holidays offer an adventure for all the family and a welcome break to meet and socialise with others who have experienced a similar loss. A loved one can mean a parent, a step-parent, or a child’s legal guardian, carer or sibling.
FAB is staffed by volunteers from the Armed Forces, Defence civilians, and Ex-Service personnel, helping as mentors, lending a helping hand or simply being someone to talk to. They are all trained by a bereavement counselling service who specialise in supporting children and young adults facing bereavement.
