Other ways to support us

Whilst our breaks are always free for the children and their families, each child place costs £1,008. Every penny you give helps us to keep providing these much-needed breaks. Alternatively, there are lots of other ways you can support us!

How your donation helps

Whether you make a one-off donation or set up a regular gift to CHICKS, every pound will help give vulnerable children and young people from across the UK an amazing break. Here are just a few examples of how your donation could help:

£5 could pay for a group of 16 children to enjoy marshmallows and hot chocolate around the campfire   £34 could provide the food for all the delicious homecooked meals a child will enjoy during their stay
£100 could pay for five warm and waterproof jackets to protect the children in the great outdoors   £350 could pay for a group of 16 children to enjoy an adventurous afternoon kayaking in the river

Here are just a few quotes from young people who have been on CHICKS breaks, showing how your donations have a real impact on their lives:


"CHICKS is like my   second family!"
"I've never been to a beach before, it's just like I dreamed it would be!"
"CHICKS gives me a chance to express myself and be who I really am."

"Thank you for the wonderful time the child I referred had in Cornwall last week. He has come back full of the joys of spring and glowing with happy air. As his support worker, I am truly grateful to see him so happy after some of the things he has had to get through. It was also brilliant that he was able to have a week of carefree fun and activities."
– Christine, Adolescent Support Worker
