The Trust provides five weeks of residential breaks throughout the summer at the Turville School in Oxfordshire for vulnerable inner city children disadvantaged by lifes circumstances or social exclusion. Many of the children’s lives have been affected by poverty, family breakdown, abuse and neglect and would not otherwise have the opportunity of a holiday. A holiday in Turville helps restore a child’s confidence and self-worth. The holidays are geared towards the needs of these extremely vulnerable children: supporting and empowering them to cope with the difficult challenges they face in life. We endevour to build self-esteem and confidence in a group and we aim to provide a safe, caring and fun environment for the children giving respite for parents and carers. The staff group is led by very experienced residential and family workers who ensure a “positive time out”.
