Green Island Holiday Trust

"Providing supported holidays for people living with a disability or long term illness"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

We are a Dorset based charity providing supported holidays for local people living with a disability. Every summer we create a touch of holiday magic by bringing together small groups of holidaymakers with teams of dedicated volunteers for a week of friendship and fun. 

We usually organise six holiday weeks a year but our activities last year were put on hold by Covid-19. This year we're doing everything to get our holidays back up and running in our new holiday venue, Ellwood Cottages.

What We Do

Our Holidays

The holidays are held during the summer months based in fully accessible holiday accommodation, in the heart of the Dorset countryside.

Holidaymakers are accommodated in  accessible cottages alongside a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers who provide 24 hour care and support.    Prior to the holiday each holidaymaker will be visited by the Trust’s Coordinator so that their care and support needs can be assessed. Each holiday starts on a Saturday and finishes the following Friday giving holidaymakers a chance to experience a week away from their normal routine.    Based around a varied programme of activities and outings, the group share a week of friendship, laughter and good food.

Regrettably Covid-19 resulted in the cancellation of our 2020 holidays. However, we are committed to resuming our holidays just as soon as it is safe to do so and  are busy planning ahead for the 2021 season. Please contact us for up-to-date information.

Volunteer


Our volunteers are our most valuable assest, sharing the week’s holiday experience with a small group of holidaymakers with disabilities. Groups come together for a week of fun and friendship based around a varied programme of activities and trips out exploring the local area. Teams of residential volunteers stay alongside the holidaymakers for the week, whilst others assist with activities on a more ad hoc basis.

If you're interested in learning more about what is involved please contact Wendy for more information.
