The Jonas Trust believes that by offering holidays at subsidised rates, it can provide people with a welcome break from the stresses and strains of their current situation, a place where they can reflect on issues that affect them, and spend time with special people. A referral to The Jonas Centre is valid for one year. If you still feel you need time away we will request another referral. A referral is signed by both the guest and the referee, usually a professional you have regular contact with. We ask for some aims that you hope will result from your time at The Jonas Centre. We find that this helps people make the most of their stay and time away. There is no limit on the amount of times a guest can book or number of applications a referral agency can make. However, as valuable income to run The Jonas Centre is generated during school holidays, the number of subsidised holidays may be limited during these times.
