What is Dreamflight?

not just a holiday, but life changing

"Dreamflight has taught me a lot of things...

One is to never let your illness put you down, always look on the bright side of life, and remember there is always someone out there who is worse off than you"

"I am now more confident in myself...

Dreamflight wasn't the place we went, it was the atmosphere and the happiness. I will never forget any of you"

"I had such an excellent time while I was there...

I will absolutely never ever ever ever... forget anything about the trip"

Welcome to Dreamflight

Dreamflight is a UK charity that changes young lives through taking children with a serious illness or disability, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida.  

 

Established in 1987 and operating annually since, Dreamflight believes that fun and joy are just as important as medical research and equipment - especially for children who perhaps can't wait long enough for the breakthrough they need or whose illnesses and treatments have brought pain, distress and disruption to their lives.

Huge thanks to Jose Goncalves who recently rode his motorbike from John O’Groats to Land’s End raising over £4,500 to pay for another VIC to have their trip of a lifetime. Jose’s daughter joined us on Dreamflight last year and Jose commented that ‘the interaction with other children has been of precious value where she has made new friends and built up courage between them to carry on knowing that life has a fun side to be enjoyed.” Thank you Jose!
