Allsorts for Families

Allsorts was set up by a group of parents who understood the many challenges the entire family are faced with when caring for a disabled child. 

We know that it’s not just parents and carers who need support, but the rest of the family too.

Our groups for siblings and grandparents are a way to offer support, advice, and friendship. While the Family Day Trips are a way for you to spend valuable time enjoying a fun day out with the entire family.

65% of families caring for disabled children feel isolated frequently or all of the time. Help us to tackle loneliness.

Family day trips

Organising an outing can be particularly challenging for families with disabled children. Allsorts arranges visits and activities to a variety of places such as Cotswold Wildlife Park, Go Bananas, pool parties, boat trips and days at the seaside.

We’ll bring along members of our staff team to help out on the trip and can provide additional support if required. We’re always looking for new places to explore, so please feel free to suggest something if you’ve had a good experience somewhere!

Who is this for?
Any Allsorts family with a current membership. Booking is essential.

How much is it?
The cost depends on the location so please see the calendar or our Newsletter for details. Families will always need to bring their own refreshments.

When and where is it?
School holidays at various times.

Siblings Group Trips

Having a brother or sister with a disability can turn a child’s world upside down and have a significant impact on the family dynamic.

Daily life can be very different to that of their friends, and that can be difficult to cope with. Siblings may feel like they don’t get as much attention as they deserve, may find it difficult to invite their friends over, and can even get bullied for having a brother or sister that is different.

Sibling Group Trips are a way for siblings to be away from their family and to spend time with other children who understand.

The activities are fun and give siblings a chance to focus on themselves for a whole day.

Who is this for?
Siblings of children with a disability, aged eight to 18.

How much is it?
The cost varies depending on the activity but is usually around £5. 

When and where is it?
One trip each school holiday.
The location varies depending on the activity.

  • “I spend fun days cooking tasty treats and eating them, crazy art works I wouldn’t do at home. We go on exciting trips out but the bestest part is the staff who guarantee me lots of laughing!”

  • “Thank you so much for giving us the trampolining opportunity. My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it all evening!”
