Aims:

  • To provide high quality, activity-based holidays for children with special needs at no cost to the child's family or carer.
  • To support the full time carers of these children by giving them a respite week.
  • To give the best possible care for children disabilities through qualified training of volunteers.
  • To create a supportive and community spirited environment which encourages the awakening of social and creative abilities.
  • To gather feedback from volunteers, carers, parents, social workers and children to evolve constantly and improve the service they provide.

Activities:

  • The holidays provide a range of fun activities in a safe and supported environment and use a care ratio of one helper to one child at all times.
  • The Trust is an entirely voluntary organisation and owes its success to over 200 people who dedicate their free time to helping these children.
  • The voluntary structure ensures that every penny raised goes to directly towards a child's holiday.
