Story

As the parent of a teenage girl with downs syndrome, I know full well how hard it can be to access a family holiday where you feel at ease and your family's particular needs can be met. And I also know that parents of special needs youngsters do have a need for times of respite and replenishment, however deeply they love their child. Holiday centres and travel companies do exist for this purpose, but they are often prohibitively expensive or require families to compete for scarce grants. It's my dream to create a simple, small scale and affordable venue where a family can come knowing their needs will be understood and catered for, or where parents can come for a quiet retreat and be unobtrusively cared for. We have a significant proportion of funds that could enable the purchase of a suitable property which includes a small apartment and ample grounds for a number of family friendly and appropriate actvities. We just need that bit more funding to make it a reality.
