Sebastian's Action Trust

Who we are

Sebastian’s Action Trust is a charity established in 2004 in accordance with the last wishes of our founder, Sebastian Gates, who wanted to reach beyond the limitations of his own lifetime and illness to help others. His desire to create a special place where families facing enormous challenges could come together for memory making, rest and relaxation in private, accessible and exclusive surroundings is the cornerstone upon which our family-focused, yet child-centred model has evolved.

We are proud to offer hundreds of families from all over the UK unique family respite holiday accommodation at The Bluebells, Basingstoke – the UK’s only purpose built facility to offer accessible breaks exclusively to the families of seriously-ill children. In addition to respite holidays, we offer more than 600 families in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey emotional, social and practical support in the community, at the family home and together with outreach and specialist support at our second site, The Woodlands in Crowthorne.

Sebastian’s Action Trust passionately believes seriously-ill children should be able to enjoy quality time together with their families, never having to face life alone. Our vision is to ensure lives, however short, are lived to the full.

Sebastian’s Action Trust is here for families of seriously-ill children. Always.
