About TimeOutProvide those with life-threatening¬†illness and their immediate families a break with a small¬†cost.
When people have a life-threatening¬†illness, the family life revolves around the illness. It is difficult to escape the illness, with bills to pay, medicines around the house. TimeOut, away from home gives the family an opportunity to come closer together, allowing a lot of the stresses and pressures to be put aside for a short time.
Families are strengthened by knowing others care about them enough to give them some practical help and support. Often a lot of the support offered at this time is medical and directed at the person with the illness. TimeOut centers on the entire family.

Can I donate in the offseason?
Will I know who would be in the house? How many people?
How about my health and safety liability?
What about insurance?
If you don’t usually rent out your holiday home then your insurance for a residential home may exclude cover for damage by guests. We recommend that you check your policy and get advice from your insurer or insurance broker about your coverage.
We recommend you get advice before signing up with Timeout as clause 4.1(d) of our terms and conditions for providers says you acknowledge that the property is adequately insured for use by the recipient.
