Our vision for the future is that every young disabled person’s life is full of fun, friendship and experiences. Just like any other kid’s. We also believe they have a right to an accessible and inclusive community supporting them and their families.
- Every young disabled person has the right to a fun and active childhood, and the chance to develop their full potential in life.
- All disabled children, young people and their families have the right to be included.
- Access is getting in – inclusion equals wanting to stay.
- Parents of disabled children are experts on their own children.
Our ethos is to work in partnership with parents, carers, charities, special schools and support groups to enable young disabled people to develop their physical, social and cognitive skills on inclusive and accessible days out.
Our work relies on your support, so please get involved or donate today.
What We Do:
We work in two ways. Firstly by offering grants towards group day trips throughout the UK organized by special schools, charities or support groups. And secondly, by organizing our own large-scale events, offering a variety of activities for young disabled people and their families to join us on for free.
We work with children and young people from the age of 5 to 25 who are disabled; that is they have a physical, sensory or mental impairment (including mental health issues) which in interaction with social, attitudinal and environmental constraints creates barriers which hinder their full and equal participation in society.
Our daytrips and events allow Daytrippers children to experience what life has to offer in a safe, fun, inclusive and accessible environment whilst also developing social, cognitive and physical goals while also potentially reliving stress for the family and or carer.
