Daytrippers was founded in 2003 to ensure children and young people living with disabilities have the opportunity to enjoy themselves, improve their confidence and break boundaries through social, recreational and educational activities.
In the years since, we have hosted 117 of our own bespoke events and funded an additional 15 events or workshops and over 660 day trips through our grants programme, providing over 45,000 individual experiences for young people and their families all over the UK. In 2018 we relaunched as a grant giving Foundation to support others to host their own inclusive and creative events, workshops or legacy programmes.
Hosting and developing large scale inclusive events, such as the UK’s largest indoor Pan-disability football tournament, we have developed a flexible understanding of what is required to ensure activities are accessible, safe and fun. Alongside this our Special Projects have championed inclusion and innovation.
Including partnerships with ZSL London Zoo and the Tate, we are establishing a more inclusive legacy for popular destinations with the aim of encouraging more positive experiences for children & young people with disabilities.
