Lifeline- The ABTA Charitable Trust
LifeLine is ABTA’s charitable trust. Previously called the ABTA Benevolent Fund, it was set up to help people in the travel industry who need it most.
We award grants and loans to help with everything from serious medical problems to sudden financial hardship. So far, we’ve supported more than 500 families, awarding over £500,000.
Our vision is that everyone in the ABTA family has somewhere to turn in times of personal crisis. We want to make sure you know what sort of help is there for you and how you can access it – just as you do everything you can to support your customers.
