The Banana Trust provides day trips for children with additional needs. The Trust provides trips for children with disabilities and special needs aged 5-18. The trust runs up to 12 day trips in the London area throughout the year.
These trips provide a day away and an exciting day for the child that they wouldn’t normal be able to have, but also give a break to parents/guardians and their families from caring for the child.
The Charity aims to target children who have little or no access to other respite care services. No financial contributions are required from the children, their families, guardians or carers.
The activities organised for the children are intended to enhance the children’s future development and create further opportunities for personal growth. The days encourage participation in events to which they may not normally have access to.
Having these experiences helps to build confidence and optimism in the children, as well as giving them an exciting time away from home. The experience away from the home and their primary carers help them to develop and play a fuller role in society and prepare them to live as independently as possible in the future.
The Trust is an entirely voluntary organisation and owes its success to people who dedicate their free time to helping these children. This voluntary structure ensures that every penny raised goes directly towards a child’s trip.
