We are a Dorset based charity providing supported holidays for local people living with a disability.
Every summer we create a touch of holiday magic by bringing together small groups of holidaymakers with teams of dedicated volunteers for a week of friendship and fun.
We are open to holiday requests from people with a wide range of disabilities. When we receive your holiday request, we arrange to visit you at your home to assess your needs. This is to ensure that we can provide the care and support that you will need whilst on your holiday.
During your holiday, personalised care and support is provided 24/7 by a friendly and dedicated team of volunteers who stay alongside you for the week. As we provide your care and support, your regular carer can benefit from a week’s respite, knowing that your needs are being met whilst you are enjoying your holiday.

Our amazing volunteers are the very heart of the Trust. It is because of their dedication that over the years we have been able to provide so many people with an exceptional holiday experience. Quite simply, without them our holidays would not happen.
Many volunteers return year after year to help; a good sign that they enjoy sharing their time with us. We know that the joy and appreciation expressed by our holidaymakers, rewards all their hard work many times over.
Whilst some volunteers participate in a holiday for a whole week, others help with specific activities for shorter periods, such as:
Through various charity events and the kind donations from the public our trust is able to raise money to provide the much needed care, support and most importantly the holiday itself to our local residents.
