Sponsor a sibling "SIBLINGS CARAVAN Of LOVE"
We know how important family holidays are to people. Getting that much needed break and a chance to make precious memories.
This is sometimes difficult when you have a poorly family member. This is why we are going to provide free of charge holidays to our super siblings and their families.
Charity information: Sponsor a sibling
Sponsor a sibling had recognised through both personal experience and communicating with our families how difficult planning and having a much needed family holiday can be.
A family holiday is a vital time for siblings to make precious memories and put everyday responsibilities to the back of their mind.
We have been told families often find traditional travel agent holidays to difficult to book due to the unpredictability of having a child with complex needs and the set days typically offered
We want to change this.
We are going to offer last minute holidays, this means familes have less risk of having to cancel a holiday avoiding disappointment to the whole family.
We are also going to allow holidays to start on any day of the week and for any length of time.
This means they can easily be taken around hospital appointments and carers hours and the many other hidden inconveniences.
Our caravan can be used when a child is in respite meaning the super sibling can have some 1-1 time
Sponsor a sibling caravan to provide free of charge holidays to siblings and their families.
What success will look like
Success will be much needed quality family time spent together putting all responsibilities and difficulties to the back of their mind
This will create beautiful memories and also give Bereaved Siblings an option to reminisce.
We will be liaising with parents/carers to asses the positive impact this has had on not only the siblings but the whole family
The caravan will needed regular fundraising to be carried out to ensure we do not risk being unable to pay overheads.
We will produce an annual report detailing the costs, funding situation and the impact the caravan has had.

Our project will benefit siblings of children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and also Bereaved Siblings and their families.
Sponsor a sibling is best placed to carry out this project as there are very few charities that focus on the sibling.
The siblings of children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and also Bereaved Siblings endure tremendous responsibilities and spend many hours caring for their brothers and sisters.
This will be a special treat to show them how amazing and appreciated they truly are.
