Give Us Time is a small, niche service charity that focuses exclusively on the military family. As a charity we provide free holiday accommodation to veterans and serving personnel and their families, as well as the families of those who have lost their lives due to military service. The holidays we provide – from a night in London, a weekend break in the country, or a week’s holiday in the sun – facilitate reconnection and readjustment to family life following long periods of separation due to operational deployment. As well as individual family holidays, we also run group holidays for those families who live, work and serve together. Give Us Time relies on donations of time from the owners of holiday groups, hotels, holiday homes and timeshares and puts them to good use. We believe that to have happy service personnel you need happy service families.

The Charity’s objects are: to support armed forces personnel, their families and veterans through such charitable means as the trustees think fit and in particular: (a) to support the morale of armed forces personnel by giving support to their family units; (b) to assist service families, especially, but not exclusively those who have suffered loss or injury; (c) to help both armed forces personnel and their families make the transition from military to civilian life; and to relieve serving and former members of the armed forces and their dependants who are in need by virtue of their physical or mental health or their economic circumstances.
