Heswall Disabled Children's Holiday Fund

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

Our Locations

Every year we host two camps for up to 30 children aged 9-15 at each camp. 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.

Each camp is attended by around 30 children & 30 volunteer helpers, as we try to aim for a one-to-one ratio of children to helpers. The programme for each camp includes both on-site activities as well as day trips out, including to the zoo, theme parks and local areas like Blackpool or Weston-Super-Mare.

Our on-site activities cater for everyones interested, with activities from pottery painting to wheelchair rugby to music and acting.

How you can help

At Heswall Camp, any help is welcomed. Whether it's becoming a volunteer, donating to the charity or providing any services that can be of use, every contribution is appreciated. We believe that with the help of the community, we can make a positive change in the lives of children.

Become a volunteer

Without Volunteers we can't run our camps to make sure disabled children aged 9-15 years and families of children with disabilities are able to enjoy a happier life - it's great fun for the adults too!

Donate to the charity

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.
