Welcome to Happy Days Children’s Charity -
Days Children's Charity provides day trips and short breaks to some
of the UK's most vulnerable children, bringing happiness and hope to
them and their families. Last year we supported over 20,000 children
with mental and physical disabilities, life limiting conditions,
children who have been abused and young carers between the ages of
three and seventeen.
We fund and organise respite breaks, residential trips, days out,
visiting theatre performances & theatre trips throughout the UK and
are a vital support to many young people in special needs schools,
hospitals and hospices.
There are over 500,000 young people with special needs in the UK,
many of them with severe mental health problems, physical
disabilities and life-limiting illnesses. The financial strain on
their families can be enormous and for some a simple trip to the
seaside or a week's holiday is beyond their means.
We rely on your kind donations of time and money to continue our
vital work, so if you can help us help some amazing kids, please get
in touch and get involved today.
Some Key Information About Us
Happy Days is a registered member of the FRSB (Fundraising Standards
Board), but we want our followers to be confident that we really do
make the most of your support by telling you a little more about our
values, and how they influence the way we work:
At Happy Days, we're continuously striving to be as cost
effective as possible to ensure that your support helps as many
children as possible.
We publish our annual accounts online every year so you can see
exactly how your donations are used (click the 'About Us' tab
above to find our Annual Report of Accounts).
Happy Days receives no government funding, we rely on the
support of trusts and people just like you to continue our work.
As well as supporting individuals and families, we work with
other regional charities and community support groups to help
them with respite breaks and day trips.
We don't phone people at home to ask for monetary donations, or
bombard our supporters with emails.
We don't use third party fundraising companies to carry out
street or phone collections.
We believe in local fundraising helping local causes, and work
at a community level. If you would like to raise funds to
support a project in your area, we'll make sure this is how your
money is used and let you know which project you've supported if
you'd like us to tell you.
We believe in building relationships with our supporters both
large and small, because we're grateful to everyone that helps
We think our regional volunteers and ambassadors are amazing,
and volunteer their time for free to help us with bucket
collections, event support and awareness building. This support
is invaluable and helps us help even more kids in communities
across the UK, so please get in touch if you could help.
Our major donors and corporate supporters make a huge difference
to our work. We always try give feedback from the children
you've supported and, where possible, invite you to attend
projects or get involved with our Community Volunteering Program
to see the real difference your support makes.
