Will you help a child like Orla to make friends for life?

Sense Holidays give disabled children opportunities to form bonds and memories that last forever, just like any other child. 

Your monthly donation could help pay for a child who is deafblind to attend a Sense pre-school group with their parents.

£15 a month could help pay for a sensory disco kit, complete with glowsticks and sensory toys, so a child who is deafblind can experience the joy of a disco!

£10 a month could help pay for a set of musical bells, to be used in music therapy.

£20 a month could help pay for a one-to-one arts session, live or online, between an artist and a child who is deafblind.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Sense will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.

Orla (right) has CHARGE syndrome, which means that she’s deafblind and has complex disabilities. She communicates using sign language, and eats her meals through a feeding tube. Her needs mean that it’s difficult for her to have sleepovers or spend time with friends in the same way as most children do. 

We’re getting more applications for Sense Holidays than ever before. Every penny is vital in helping us take more children like Orla on an unforgettable break. 

Your support makes Sense Holidays possible

Every child should get to experience the things we all take for granted: having new experiences, meeting new people and making friends.

As Orla’s mum says, “The world’s not built for people like Orla.” Orla is a social butterfly, but there are so many barriers for her to have regular experiences like holidays and sleepovers. 

Thanks to gifts like yours, Orla had the time of her life making friends on her first Sense Holiday. 

Orla told us herself in BSL: “I love holidays and I am starting to stretch and grow my wings and I love being independent from my mum and dad!”
