We believe that everyone deserves a holiday, but many of our holidaymakers do not have the chance to take a break away from their daily routine because of their medical conditions. By supplying suitable level-access accommodation, and taking care of their care and support needs, not only do we enable them to have a holiday, but their carers also benefit from a week’s respite.
The Green Island Holiday Trust has been providing unique holiday experiences for people from Dorset (including Corfe Mullen) who are living with disabilities since 1991 when the charity was founded by Jo Davies.
We have a wonderful new venue for our holidays in 2023, Wraxall Yard, nestled in the stunning Dorset countryside. The beautifully designed, former barnyard buildings, offer wonderful, accessible holiday accommodation and provide the ideal base for us as we continue to create our holiday magic.
The personal touch
Over the years we have resisted calls to expand and offer more holidays as by remaining small and true to our origins, we are able to keep our personal touch and ensure that our holiday experiences are very special for all those involved.
How we are run
As a registered charity, the Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees, who bring a wealth of diverse experience and skills to managing the charity.
An appointed Co-ordinator is responsible for the day-to-day running of the Trust and the practical organisation of the holidays.
Everything else is done by our incredible team of volunteers who help us tailor our holidays to peoples’ needs, but also make sure that fun, good food, companionship, suitable care and safety are our top priorities.
