Welcome to the Paul’s Fund and Paul’s Place web site

We provide holiday breaks to young adults with a terminal or life limiting illness,
facing bereavement or being a long term, unpaid carer.

Paul’s Fund

Paul’s Fund is a grant making charitable trust set up through the Charities Aid Foundation with the aim of enabling young adults and their families who are facing challenging personal circumstances to have a respite holiday break staying at Paul’s Place, which provides both Bed and Breakfast and self-catering accommodation. Paul’s Place is located in the delightful village of Georgeham near Croyde on the North Devon coast.

You may qualify for a grant if you are a young adult facing one of these challenging circumstances:

  • Diagnosis of a terminal or life threatening illness
  • Bereavement
  • Being a long term, unpaid carer of a close relative

You may also qualify for a grant if you are the parent of a young adult who has died, or if you are caring for your son or daughter who has a terminal or life threatening illness.

The grants cover the accommodation costs of the young adult for up to a week along with their spouse or partner, immediate family members or a close friend accompanying them .
