Describes and evaluates the Family Breaks pilot project run by the Family Holiday Association to provide free supported holidays for families under stress. Research showed that families were positive about their holiday experience. Many derived long term benefits from the holiday in their ability to cope with difficulties and take control of their lives, helping them work towards positive change.
