Children's Small Group Holidays

The Trust works one to one with the children on the holidays, addressing specific issues aimed at improving family/school life for them. Through this emotional and practical support, many children have expressed their deep felt anxieties and fears including on occasions disclosures of abuse.

Location

Situation

We help children who may have never known a secure loving family environment and nearly all those we see are from single parent, unemployed or very low income families. The children who take part in our educational small group holidays may have behavioral problems or have been neglected or mentally, emotionally, sexually or physically abused. Some have never been on a holiday before in their life. These children are not the least able; they have been disabled by their circumstances.

Solution

These holidays help keep the children in the curriculum as they are designed to meet their needs and help build their self esteem. On individual experience levels children can learn that there is another way to live and there are adults who you can trust to care for you, mean what they say and say what they mean, eat good food, have a good week's sleep, learnt how to make choices, take care of yourself and keep clean, relax and be children!
