Families Activity Breaks (FAB)

What is FAB?

Families’ Activity Breaks (FAB) is a non-public funded, tri Service charitable initiative, providing fun and challenging activity camps around the UK for bereaved Military families.

Families’ Activity Breaks

If your child is aged up to 19 years old 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.

Full details of 2017 FAB dates are at
