Being involved with a charity like Dreamflight is truly rewarding. Realising that your efforts contribute to changing a child's life is an amazing and worthwhile experience.


At Dreamflight we know that our volunteers are our backbone. We couldn’t do what we do without them.
 

Whilst Dreamflight is an annual event, the work continues year-round. If you’d like to get involved, there are many ways to go about it - we have active groups across the UK, and in our events section, you will see what’s happening in your area and who to contact. Alternatively contact our office and we’ll make sure your offer of help is passed on to the Dreamflighters in your area.


I want to fundraise for Dreamflight


Fantastic! We need to raise around £750,000 to make each trip happen, so your help is greatly appreciated. Please see our fundraising pages for how to get started.

 

I want to help out on the Dreamflight trip


Our annual trip to Orlando with 192 deserving children couldn’t happen without the support of an army of volunteers, both in the UK and in Florida. There are a huge number of roles required, and by the time we hit the theme parks the ratio of adult helpers to children is pretty much 1:1. We require both medical and non-medical professionals and our escorts come from all walks of life, from nurses to police, to physiotherapists to office workers.

 

We just ask that you are over 25 years of age, physically fit (the days are long and can be VERY demanding!), and that you have shown a commitment to or passion for Dreamflight in some way. We are fortunate to have many more people interested in coming along each year than places available, but we encourage applications from anyone who is committed to helping children realise their potential…and making sure they have FUN!

 

Our next trip will take place15-25th October 2016, and we welcome volunteers to help out. Please note we are currently reviewing our application process and will post an application form here shortly, in the meantime please contact office@dreamflight.org to register your interest. 

 

You might not be able to offer your services for the 10 days of the holiday, but we also always need volunteers for our stay at a Heathrow hotel the night before we depart, especially night nurses. So if you might be able to help, please contact the Dreamflight office.

 

Many thanks for your interest.
