Chicks

Description:

Chicks is a national children's charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK.

We believe every child has the right to make positive childhood memories. A chicks break inspires new confidence and gives children the chance to have fun, enjoy new experiences and relax. More than anything, it gives them the chance to just be children.

The children we help come from a variety of backgrounds. They might be living in poverty, be young carers, be victims of bullying or abuse, or have been bereaved. The one thing they all have in common is that they could really benefit from a week away from their circumstances.

Each week from March - November, 16 children come to stay at one of our 3 retreats. Each break is divided into school key stage ages: KS2, aged 8-11, KS3, aged 11-13 and KS4, aged 14-15. The children are accompanied by 3 fully-trained members of the Chicks team, and up to 6 adult volunteers.

The breaks are fun and exciting whilst also providing opportunity for rest and relaxation. The children have the chance to take part in new activities and enjoy new experiences, and we always make the most of the beautiful countryside that surrounds our retreats.
