Partner: CHAT children's respite charity

Project: Donation

Many families in Buckinghamshire struggle to give round-the-clock care to their sick children and cope with everyday life too.

Depression and resentment towards the sick child are common within such families: siblings often lose out on quality time with parents and indeed, the whole family can often reach breaking point.

CHAT Children’s Respite Charity helps these families get their lives back on track in many ways: they offer short-term respite care including at-home care packages for (each year) approximately 70 people and family day trips for approximately 40 people.

A little money can go a long way at CHAT: just £20 funds another hour of respite care. The Axis Foundation’s donation of £500 will fund summer day trips for careworn families to Gulliver’s Land Theme Park in Milton Keynes. The days out will provide entertainment and holiday spirit as well as much-needed respite from care. On top of transport and entrance tickets, the money will contribute towards providing carers to assist the families on the day out.



Project feedback...

"On behalf of CHAT and the families we support I would like to thank Axis for your generous donation. Without the support of organisations like yourself we would be unable to provide these families with the respite care they so need. It is a round-the-clock job caring for a sick child, and there is little opportunity for rest or for quality time with other family members. The respite that CHAT provides to these families is a life line. Thank you" - Anthea Cass, Charity Fundraiser at CHAT
