SAGA CHARITABLE TRUST
Founded by Saga Holidays, the Saga Charitable Trust's mission is to benefit underprivileged communities at destinations in developing countries that host Saga holidaymakers. It does this by supporting projects that deliver health and welfare benefits, and by providing the skills and opportunities for communities to become self sufficient and ultimately to help break the cycle of poverty.
The Saga Charitable Trust funds four key areas - education, training, healthcare and income generation. The trust works closely with local communities to identify programmes, and by directly targeting local needs it is able to make a real and sustainable difference.
SAGA RESPITE FOR CARERS TRUST
Saga Respite for Carers Trust was established to give unpaid carers a much needed break, by providing free holidays each year for unpaid carers, ensuring continuity of care for their loved ones in the form of paid respite.
Family carers save our economy billions each and every year, but despite suffering from seven of the top ten workplace stresses, they often receive little to no funding or support. The period for applying for a Respite for Carers Trust break, or nominating someone else to receive one, runs from 1st January to 31st August each year.
