CHICKS

CHICKS is a national children's charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK.

We believe every child has the right to make positive childhood memories. A CHICKS break inspires new confidence and gives children the chance to have fun, enjoy new experiences and relax. More than anything it gives them the chance to be just children.

Children are referred to us by professionals (i.e. teachers and social workers) so we can help those who need our support the most.  We support children aged 8-15.
