about us

Inclusive, accessible, and fun opportunities for children with disabilities and life-limiting conditions and their families.

Daytrippers, an independent charity was established in 2003 with the mission of funding day trips and delivering large-scale bespoke events (find out more here). 

In 2018, the charity was restructured and renamed Daytrippers Foundation, a grant-giving organisation. We believe every child has the right to a happy and thriving childhood. Our aim is to fund opportunities for children, young people and families to explore, learn, develop, and achieve.  UK special schools, children’s hospices, hospitals, charities, and not-for-profit organisations may apply for a grant. 

Grants programmes:

  • Day Trips – Groups have enjoyed great days out, such as trips to theme parks, outdoor activity centres, zoos, beaches and theatre performances. 
  • Events & Workshops – Organisations are awarded up to £3,000 to develop inclusive events, therapy sessions and workshops. 
  • Legacy – Organisations are invited to apply for up to £10,000 towards innovative project ideas which aimed to make a long-term difference to the lives of children and their families.

Challenge perceptions. Promote inclusive fun for all. Get creative.
