What a Difference a Day Makes...
Since 1992, Happy Days Children's Charity has been helping families and groups by organising and funding special days and holidays such as trips to the seaside, theatres, zoos, museums, outdoor activity centres, sporting events and other educational and cultural activities for UK children living with mental, physical and emotional difficulties.
With your help, we were able to support almost 26,000 children with additional needs last year, giving them a chance to get out, meet new people, develop new skills and build confidence in the face of adversity.
As well as helping individual families, we also to offer our support to hundreds of groups such as SEN schools and arrange special days for other charities including children’s hospitals, women’s refuges and victim support services, to name just a few.
It's your kind donations of time and money that make this possible and we're grateful for any support you can give.
Together we're making a difference, one day at a time...
