"ABTA LifeLine was set up to help people in the travel industry when they need it most.

Sometimes it only takes a small change in circumstance to tip the balance and turn a manageable situation into an unmanageable one.

We award financial grants to help colleagues suffering real financial hardship caused by life-changing medical conditions, bereavement, disability, domestic violence and everything in between.

From wheelchairs to emergency repairs, to help with essential daily living costs such as food and utility bills - nothing is too big or too small for us to consider."
