APPLY FOR FUNDING

For all the children and families we help, there are countless more that need our assistance.

 

Our aim is to help as many people as we can by funding trips, experiences, respite breaks and group activity holidays for those who need them most.

Details of the different types of trips that we offer can be found below but if you need further help, please give us a call on
01462 530710.

Day Trips & Visiting Theatre

 

You can apply to us for a day trip to a wide variety of destinations, for example the seaside, a theme park or the theatre. You may also apply for a theatre performance or experience to visit your premises.

Eligibility

You should represent a group of young people aged 3-17 with additional needs. Examples of organisations we have supported in the past include SEN schools and groups, young carers and women's refuges.

 

All key carers who will be accompanying children on the trip must be DBS cleared. You must also have a child protection policy in place.

We do ask that you complete a feedback form after the activity has taken place, as this allows us to let our supporters know the difference we make.

Family Respite Breaks

 

Our family breaks can be to the seaside or the countryside, usually in the UK.

 

You can apply to us for a family break if you have a child or children with special educational needs, who have been victims of abuse or who have a life-limiting condition, and are aged 3-17.

 

We always do our best to act quickly to arrange breaks for children with life-limiting conditions, and try to be flexible with the application critria.


We accept applications from parents, guardians, grandparents or siblings, as well as GPs, consultants, nurses or social workers.

 

We do ask that you complete a feedback form after you have taken your break, as this allows us to tell our supporters more about our work.
