Yorkshire Children's Trust support the emotional and financial needs of some of the most vulnerable children in the Yorkshire region.

As part of our support we offer free respite breaks, not just for the poorly child, but parents and siblings too. A chance for the entire family to recharge their batteries and our breaks are a great way to promote positive mental health.

We have seen a vast increase in demand for our services since the start of the pandemic with children losing loved ones and suffering long bouts of isolation away from family, friends and peers causing a profound effect including reports of self harming, anxiety and stress.

Yorkshire Children's Trust provide counselling and free respite breaks. We sadly cannot keep up with demand and are asking for help to fundraise to help fund a second static caravan for us to double capacity and provide many more respite breaks.

Our current caravan is a 2 bedroom, 6 berth. To accommodate bigger families, we are fundraising for a three bedroom, 8 berth unit and with your help we hope to have it in place for the start of the next holiday season.
