Fun, accessible and inclusive opportunities for children with disabilities and life-limiting conditions and their families.
Daytrippers is a children’s charity which creates opportunities to explore, learn, develop and achieve. We believe every child has the right to a happy and thriving childhood.
“As long as there are organisations like Daytrippers, my daughter will be able to participate fully in life despite her condition.”
We work with children and young people up to the age of 25 years through the following programmes.
Day Trip Grants
We fund great days out for children and young people across the UK. Special schools, children’s hospices, charities and support groups are eligible to apply for a grant towards a day trip of their choice.
We host free events for families, schools and support groups such as relaxed theatre performances, aerial challenges and creative workshops. We have worked closely with the Zoological Society of London and the Tate to deliver several inclusive events. We also collaborate with children’s hospices to develop tailor made in-house events for children receiving respite and palliative care.
We are keen to support innovative projects offering children exceptional opportunities to connect with each other, develop skills and challenge social barriers. We have funded progressive events exploring Tourette’s syndrome, week-long sensory workshops and more.
