Hosting free camps for children with disabilities


Heswall Disabled Children’s Holiday Fund have been hosting free holidays for disabled children since 1962. We are driven by a desire to provide opportunities for those children that might not otherwise be available to them, and to provide respite to their families.

Become a volunteer

Without Volunteers, the Association cannot function and because of them, disabled children aged 9-15 years and families of children with disabilities are able to enjoy a happier life. Volunteers are needed to help fundraise and to help on our holidays.

Make a donation

To run each camp we need to raise over £35,000 each year, for which we rely upon the generosity of donations from industry, charitable organisations and individuals.

Why it matters

Every year we host a summer camp for up to 30 children aged 9-15 years who have disabilities. At our camp the children benefit from the independence it offers them. For many, this is the only time they spend away from home all year.
