Daytrippers was founded in 2003 and to date we have helped over 25,000 young disabled people go on inclusive day outs throughout the UK.
Our vision for the future is that every young disabled person’s life is full of fun, friendship and experiences. Just like any other kid’s. We also believe they have a right to an accessible and inclusive community supporting them and their families.
We work in two ways. Firstly by offering grants towards group day trips throughout the UK organized by special schools, charities or support groups. And secondly, by organizing our own large-scale events, offering a variety of activities for young disabled people and their families to join us on for free.Daytrippers continuously growing list of events includes; the UK’s largest pan-disability football tournament, co-sponsoring London Zoo’s Annual Special Children’s Day, Oscar film premieres showcasing the children’s own films and animations, multi sensory art and music workshops at Colourscape Festival, and a sought after private showing of the annual Christmas Pantomime at The Lyric Theatre.
Every penny donated we put straight towards a daytrip or event ensuring that as many young disabled people as possible get out and about all over the UK.
