Applications are currently closed.

Special Day applications are currently closed.

Due to the initial impact of Covid-19 earlier in the year, we took the difficult decision to stop accepting new applications on 16 March 2020.

We also postponed all Special Days that were already being arranged at the time and therefore have over 700 beneficiaries who are now waiting for their Special Days to be rearranged during 2020 and 2021.

We are doing all we can to be in a position to reopen applications again in autumn 2021. However, if we are able to bring this date forward, we will update this page with any further changes and information.

For now, though, we are sad to say that we are not currently accepting new applications for a Special Day.

Please note that we will not be storing or processing any applications received after 16 March 2020 and are not operating a waiting list.
