The problem that the charity tackles is the plight of young children and families in Leeds who are living in dire conditions. Young children aged 7 to 11 years are given an opportunity to enjoy time and space to be themselves within a safe and secure environment by the sea and in the countryside.


The charity will provide free residential short breaks/respite at Silverdale Holiday Centre, near Morecambe where the children can enjoy games and activities to develop confidence, self-esteem, personal skills, and lasting friendships within an atmosphere of fun and friendship.
