To provide residential activity holidays for children in Year 6 who are in social or economic need. Giving children holidays to remember, interacting in a healthy way with adults and other children in a safe, caring atmosphere. Summers Trust provide holidays so that children can experience new activities in an environment that will encourage team building and communication skills. The holidays help to instil self confidence, self reliance and improve the self esteem of the children while providing them with lifelong memories. With a proven holiday formula, developed with over 25 years experience, we help these children, from multi-ethnic backgrounds, to form relationships with each other, with adults and young adults at a very important stage in their life; the transition from primary to secondary education. This gives them a renewed self-assurance upon returning to their families and new school life. The holidays also assist in respite care for families who may have issues regarding childcare, thus enabling them to refocus on other matters concerning the family. The staffing of the holidays is on a voluntary basis and is a mixture of experienced volunteers and young adults, new to child care. The Trustees and experienced volunteers have significant backgrounds in the education sector, from classroom teachers through to retired head teachers. This enables the new volunteers to develop their skills and encounter learning situations that are directly related to managing the care of children. The holidays therefore have a dual role: To enrich the lives of children in need of such a holiday and to enable young volunteers to contribute to their local community.
