Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre provides seaside holidays for children from Derbyshire who have difficulty in their daily lives and are unlikely to have respite from stress due to family circumstances.

Our holidays aim to deliver happiness, enjoyment, self-esteem, personal development, security and memories to last a lifetime.

Established in 1891, DCHC provides a week-long break at its specialist residential centre in Skegness, Lincolnshire, and can currently offer 660 holidays per year.

The residential experience provides endless opportunity for contributing to the personal and social development of the children, especially making it clear to them that they are accepted as worthwhile individuals.

The development of the children's self-esteem, attitudes and behaviour can be significant during the period.

Opportunities for personal development are created for the children, whatever their strengths and abilities. For many children the relationships gained remain with them throughout their lives.

We operate solely on donations so very much appreciate every penny you can raise for us.
