At Happy Days, we’re very mindful of the current situation regarding Coronavirus and, as with most organisations, are assessing the situation as it develops whilst doing our very best to continue to provide support. Everyone’s health and safety clearly comes first though.
We are still open, doing our best to remote work, and you can still reach us on 01462 530710 if you need help and support.
At this time, we’re working hard to re-arrange most of our group and family activities for a later date and will do everything we can to ensure that everyone gets their special day, eventually. There are a very limited number of activities that are continuing to go ahead which are not affected by the social distancing measures that we’re all being asked to observe, and we hope this helps bring some much needed happiness to the brave children we help during this stressful time. Also for the time being, new applications will not be being processed for around the next three months, or until things start to return to normal a little.
Also, in response to the current situation and requests we are receiving for support, we have now set up the Happy Days Healing Days fund, which will be prioritising activities for children with SEND who have been further impacted by the coronavirus. You can Find Out More Here
Thanks so much to everyone for your lovely messages of support in tricky times. Until activities get back to normal, we'll be posting up pictures of older trips on our social media to throw a bit of positivity out into the world with #HappyMemories
Much love from us all at Happy Days Children’s Charity, and please do stay well.
So Much More Than Just a Nice Day Out...
Set up by three mums in 1992, Happy Days Children's Charity helps 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 children in the UK living with mental, physical and emotional difficulties.
With your help, we were able to support almost 25,000 children with additional needs last year, removing barriers to give them a chance to get out, make new friends, 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...
