Applicants that have been granted a holiday receive an invitation approximately two months before the commencement of the holiday. The invitation will be sent by mail or e-mail. We do not notify applicants about negative decisions.
Matters affecting the decision to grant a holiday
Previous holiday support. Those applying for the first time are given priority. We consider it important that as many people as possible in need for a social holiday are granted for a holiday at least once. We do not grant holiday to the same applicant in consecutive years.
The applicant’s economic situation. For example small income, large amounts of debt, medical expenses or accommodation costs.
Social grounds. For example unemployment, lay-off, loneliness, family carer role, family problems or a difficult situation in life.
Health reasons. For example disability, physical or mental illnesses.
The number of applicants. Due to the large number of applicants, we are only able to grant a holiday to some of the applicants.
MTLH makes the decisions to grant holidays in line with the policies of the Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations STEA.
