The value and importance of staffed trips
The value of staffed trips is widely recognised as an effective means of extending and promoting personal and social development among our young people as well as developing independence and giving families a much needed short break. ACCT promotes and encourages the organisation of staffed trips and outings for all our young people, and it is hoped that parents/carers will also recognise the value and importance of these visits, and give their full support.
Cost of the Visit
ACCT believes wholeheartedly in the value of these experiences, and in the past has offered these trips with no charge in an attempt to ensure that these opportunities are accessible to all. However, offering a trip of this nature to a large group of young people incurs considerable expense to the charity and consequently, a voluntary contribution of £5 is being requested from parents/guardians towards staffing and volunteer costs. This contribution is entirely voluntary. However, please note that without such voluntary contributions ACCT may be unable to offer this sort of opportunity in the future.
Payment can be made in cash, cheque made payable to Asperger’s Children and Carers Together or by using the Donate Now link on our website. If you wish to discuss this further confidentially please contact Nicola.
Using the Donate Now link on the website allows you to add Gift Aid at no extra cost to you and greatly increases the value of small donations to the charity. If you would like to make payment by other means, please ask us for a Gift Aid declaration form.
