Guest Blog: Children’s Respite Trust

The Children’s Respite Trust provides respite for disabled children and support for their families throughout East Sussex and beyond. Its team of volunteer caseworkers work with the families to fight their cases and make sure that they are getting all of the statutory support that they are entitled to before then fundraising to provide a break privately.

Throughout 2015 the Trust is fundraising to recruit a team of community carers who can provide respite for families at home while making sure that the children have a fantastic time in the process.

None of this work would be possible without the support of the local community and the numerous fundraising events that are organised throughout the year by the local community and the trust itself.

Coming up is the Charity Family Fun day on 27 June – Tennis in the Park at Gildredge Park – a popular event which last year attracted over 1,000 visitors and provides local businesses with sponsorship & brand awareness opportunities.

There is also a unique opportunity for the brave to take part in a sponsored skydive for our charity.  The scheduled date for this is 30 August.
