Situation

The children and families we support are those struggling with some of the toughest challenges life can bring. Many are dealing with issues such as severe and sudden illness, bereavement, disability and mental health and abuse. Almost 5 million children in the UK live in families who cannot afford a simple break away from home. They miss out on the many positive benefits that spending time together away from the daily grind can bring.

Solution

The Shades Day Fund has been created to help fund our caravan programme. When we bought our first caravan in 2002, it was a way of ensuring we could provide breaks for struggling families during the peak school holiday periods. 15 years later and we now own 16 caravans, located at seaside holiday parks around Britain. Between them they provide hundreds of families every year with a much needed and often life-changing break away from home.
