Supported by the Annington Trust, this four-night break for military families with additional needs children is now taking applications …

This October, come and join the SSAFA family for a fun-filled break open exclusively to military families with children who have additional needs and disabilities – and siblings are welcome too!

The Family Break runs from Monday 21 October to Friday 25 October 2019, with 50 spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Calvert Trust is a fully accessible centre that ‘enables people with physical, learning, behavioural and sensory disabilities to experience exciting, challenging and enjoyable outdoor activities’. The aim is to give military families the opportunity to spend quality time together while challenging themselves through outdoor activities and seeing each other achieve. 

In a beautiful setting overlooking a Devon reservoir, with three hot meals a day provided, families can bond over daily activities such as:

  • horse riding
  • kayaking
  • biking
  • sailing
  • archery
  • abseiling
  • bush craft
  • low ropes.

Want to attend?

Get in touch with Frances Robinson, additional needs and disability advisor, for more information on how to apply – email or call 0207 463 9315.


  • All children within the family must be between 3 and 18 years.
  • Children must be dependants of a current serving person or reservist.
  • One child attending must have an additional need and/or disability.
  • At least one parent must attend the break with their children.
