Our break centres can provide time away for the Armed Forces community when it's needed most.

Whether you are recovering from an injury or illness, have been struggling with a recent bereavement, or simply looking for a chance to spend quality time together, the Legion is here to help.

But it’s not just a holiday – it’s the chance to be a family again or find solace alongside the serving community.

“It's hard to balance Army life with a family. Spending time away with my girls was so special.”

Our break centres offer a chance to get away from it all when things get tough. 

We welcome everyone – young or old, serving or ex-serving as well as families or those travelling solo.
