The Newman Holiday Trust
Established in 1981, the Trust began by running a one week summer holiday for children with special needs. The Trust now provides holidays for over 100 disabled children aged 5-16 each year, in various locations around the UK. Due to the high level of skilled care they require or financial circumstances, the children selected for these breaks would not otherwise receive a holiday. The holidays provide a range of fun activities in a safe and supported environment and use a care ratio of one helper to one child at all times. The Trust has no paid employees and owes its success to over 200 people who dedicate their free time to helping these children.
