The Council of Management of Child have decided not to offer any holiday programme for Summer 2010. This decision has been taken to allow a fundamental review of the organisation's current structure and strategy.
Following the AGM, a review group was formed and this group will meet regularly during the next six months. It is hoped that the recommendations from this review group will form the basis for decisions on the future direction of Child.
How can I get involved in the review?
Volunteers will be contacted directly to participate in the review group or you can email email@example.com requesting further information on joining the group.
Thank you for your continuing interest in and support of Child.
Child provides holidays for children aged 7-15. We have provided holidays for over 1200 children to date. Holidays are a great opportunity for the children to mix, learn from each other and enjoy a wide range of fun activities. We ensure that the week provides a safe, secure and fun environment for them. The holidays take place in carefully selected residential centres.
Child Holiday Structure
Each holiday is run and organised by experienced and
trained staff, lead by the holiday Director and Assistant Director.
The Support Staff consists of a team of volunteers, including a trained first-aider, who assist the Directors and the Group Leaders.
When the children arrive they are allocated into groups of approximately eight and with two Group Leaders, who ensure the children have all the care they need during their stay.
The children can take part in a host of activities including swimming, rock climbing, horse riding, crafts and canoeing to name but a few.

Our volunteers are full of energy and enthusiasm and give all they can to make the holiday as great as they possibly can.
Since 1996 we have run 20 very successful holidays in Omagh, Castlewellan, Craigavon and Newcastle for children aged 8-15 yrs. We have provided holidays for over 1200 children, all of whom had an action packed, fun week.
