Help us to provide respite breaks
to some of the most vulnerable children
in the Yorkshire region

Help our fundraising appeal

Yorkshire Children’s Trust believe that the mental health of children is of paramount importance, especially so if they have additional needs, illnesses or disabilities. The charity provide free respite breaks for not just a child who needs our help, but their parents and siblings too. We can even accommodate a carer if one is needed. In many cases, the families we support have never had a break together before due to financial constraints and the pressure of dealing with additional needs that illnesses and disabilities can present.

Due to the pandemic we have seen a sharp rise in referrals for our respite breaks and our demand now far outstrips our availability. We are fundraising to buy a new static caravan to compliment the one we have at Butlins in Skegness to be able to support many more famlies over the next few years.
