Days Away

Our Days Away have currently been suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions but will resume when possible.

Our Days Away project has been running since 2017 and was developed to help our children gain enough confidence to be able to attend a full Weekend Away. The days can be a wonderful opportunity for a child and their volunteer to get to know each other better and develop their bond built at their weekly activities.

How it works

We run three Days Away each year and one of these are specifically designed for our teenagers. In the past, we have had Days Away to different cities where the activities were chosen by the teenagers themselves. We have also worked with local activity centres to create special experiences for our children such as our zookeeper experience at Berkshire College of Agriculture.

Our Days Away are available for all our children matched with one of our volunteers and can be an excellent steppingstone to children feeling confident to come on one of our Weekends Away for an overnight stay at an activity centre. Invitations to our Days Away are sent out via email to our eligible families and upcoming dates can be found on our events page.
