Give Us Time takes one-week holidays donated by owners of holiday homes and timeshares, and matches them with military personnel in need of rest, rehabilitation and reconnection with their families. The charity was founded in 2012 by Dr Liam Fox MP who, in his time as an Army medic and later as Secretary of State for Defence, became aware that homecomings were not always as easy as might be expected for service personnel or their families.

After 6 months away, the family dynamic has changed and it can be stressful for service personnel to come back into a family environment which they expected to be the same as it was before. Give Us Time helps service families adjust to life after combat. The charity provides families with the chance to spend time together and reconnect, as couples and as parents, and to reaffirm their family bond.
