24x7 Special Needs Holiday Trust

Thank you for your kind support and giving people with special needs the chance to have a holiday of a lifetime.

What we do

We offer holidays to people with special needs and their family's or carer (in many cases their first ever holiday) in a dedicated centre in the Algarve with special equipment such as bedrooms with hoists and adjoining hygiene rooms, education center, sensory room and sensory gardens, petting zoo, and a swimming pool with hoist. This is the only dedicated holiday center of its type in Europe.

Carlisle Mencap

Thank you once again for your support. It's important to us to empower people with learning disabilities to realise their full potential.

At Carlisle Mencap we respect and value people's differences while striving for a society where they can realise their full potential. The organisation is committed to empowering those with learning disabilities to grow and stretch beyond the limits often placed upon them by society. We provide life-long person centred support for people with learning disabilities and support over 400 users.

We provide residential respite for children and adults, supported living, young people's clubs, playschemes, community outreach, leisure, befriending and holidays. At the heart of what we do, is the belief that people with learning disabilities have a right to achieve the best that they can and live empowered/ fulfilled lives. Our services are person centred and designed to empower and enhance the day to day experience of our clients and the wider community. We understand the emotional needs of people with learning disability and their need to feel valued and have self-esteem – we work towards fulfilling these needs. We're particularly keen for people with disabilities to have the same experiences as their non-disabled peers and specialise in getting people involved in sport, arts and in their local communities and encouraging people in the community to interact with our service users.

Dame Hannah Rogers Trust

Hannahs first opened thier site in Ivybridge in 1925 as the UKs first orthopaedic hospital. We then opened the doors to support children with cerebal palsy and since then, Hannahs at Ivybridge has gone from strength to strength. The site is now home to our school, respite centre, community hub, children's home and transition project for 19-25 year olds. Hannahs aquired Seale-Hayne in 2010 and opened our social enterprise to the public. The 90 acre site provides innovative and ground breaking facilities for people with disabilities, once they reach adulthood. With an outdoor pursuits centre, recording studios, sensory music room, a farm, a gallery, a bistro, workshops, vocational courses and learning placements.

Give Us A Break 2010

With your support, we can make a huge difference to the lives of disabled children and their families. The RaynorShine Centre will be a haven where the children and their families can be set free.

Dawn & Peter Raynor are the doting parents of twins that suffer with Tuberous Sclerosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes intractable epilepsy.

Give Us A Break 2010, the charity formed by Dawn, wants to build a centre which will provide short break facilities for children such as Callan & Ethan and their parents / carers. A haven where the children can be set free to literally do what they want. A large, comfortable, ranch-style home where disabled children can visit with their carers to pursue a number of activities in a safe and stimulating environment. Run, shout, sing, dance, climb, swim and splash without being shushed or stared at. Cook, paint, be creative, or be quiet, calm and relax, then spend the night in a comfortable bedroom specifically designed with their needs in mind but with the comfortable feel of their 'own room'.

Grace House North East

Grace House offers specialist, high quality planned short breaks, for up to eight children and young people aged between 5 -17 years 11 months, who have a complex physical disability, learning disability and complex health needs and who may have a life-limiting condition. Opportunities are available for children and young people to enjoy time away from home whilst continuing to be cared for by trained staff. It also enables parents and families to take a break from their caring role.

Happy Days

We provide family holidays, group holidays and day trips for children aged 3-17 across the UK. The holidays and trips are great morale boosters. The children come home with a more positive attitude which invariably sparks off an immediate improvement in their physical and mental well being and provides the children with the wonderful gifts of happiness and hope.

At happy days we believe that every child has the right to experience what life has to offer. Most of us are able to find the time we need to have a family holiday or enjoy a day out, to help us to re-group, bond, sort out problems, and, of course have some fun!

However families and groups caring for children with special needs face many barriers. Transport and venue facilities are often poorly designed to accommodate children with special needs, and the fact that many venue staff are untrained in the relevant issues can turn a seemingly unambitious trip into a truly demoralising event.

Happy Days Children's Charity is here to help families and groups overcome barriers to taking time out. Since 1992 we have been assisting families and groups by providing support and advise as well as organising day trips and holidays to enable families and groups to enjoy themselves together, rather than having to worry about how they are going to get to their destination and the support they receive when they arrive.

Our children benefit from a range of activities, from day trips to seaside and theatre, family holidays and group activity holidays.

Team Reece

Team Reece is the dream of one little boy with a cancerous brain tumour who wants to provide a holiday home, respite breaks and fund research into better treatment options for childhood cancers.

Families are left fractured and devastated when a child is diagnosed and research is woefully underfunded in childhood cancers. Reece wants to change that but we need your help!

Willow

Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.

For some their Special Day is the opportunity to return some normality to their lives. For others it is the last chance to fulfil a dream. But for all, it is a life-affirming experience that can lift spirits, reunify families and be a source of strength when it's needed most.

To date, Willow has provided more than 10,000 Special Days for young adults diagnosed with a life-threatening condition such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis and Huntington's disease.

By taking part in the Unity Lottery you are helping to create more Special Days, thank you.
