I may need a 5 days off for family reasons and know any holiday request will be declined. is there an option that I can ask for unpaid leave and can that also be refused ?

Has this family reasons given you “stress”? Just go on the sick

Yes in law it can be refused. If it's for a compassionate reason, or an emergency one it can also be refused, but generally isn't

If you still have outstanding annual leave and give sufficient notice and due to the amount of lapsing at this time of the year I would still slap it in. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
Failing that request unpaid leave giving enough information for the reasons you require this time off.
The managers booklet for " Other Time " off clearly states that your request will be treated sympathetically.
