How to nominate children for the Dreamflight trip

Thank you for thinking about nominating a child for Dreamflight. Please find following some information to help you and do feel free to contact the Dreamflight team if you have further questions.

 

About the trip

Dreamflight is a ten day annual trip to the theme parks of Florida for 8-14 year old children with a serious illness and/or disability. We aim to take children whose situations make it unlikely for them ever to be able to go on such a trip without the full medical, nursing and physiotherapy care we provide. This is a unique opportunity for children to go away without family members, to meet new friends and build confidence and independence. Dreamflight will take place between 14th - 24th October this year.

 

Who can nominate?

Only a medical professional responsible for the child’s care can complete the nomination form. The nominator should read the Dreamflight Medical Director's letter before completing. Please also ensure 'Section 9 - Medical Authorisation' is signed by a Consultant or GP. 

 

The nomination process

Nomination forms and the Medical Directors’ letter can be downloaded below or requested by email office@dreamflight.org or by phone 01494 722733. 

 

To avoid disappointment we strongly recommend that applications are not discussed with children until the selection process is complete. A regional Dreamflight Group Leader will contact the nominator directly once all the applications have been reviewed. We aim to invite those children selected for the trip at the beginning of June.

 

Once invited, pre-trip meetings are arranged so families, guardians and Dreamflight children can meet their teams and have any questions answered. Dreamflight Group Leaders are always on hand to support.

 

Downloading the nomination form

You can download the nomination form as an editable PDF (you’ll need to save it to your system to edit). Once completed and printed, please ensure you discard your saved copy in order to protect the child’s personal data.  The printed nomination form can then by signed by a Consultant or GP and posted back to Dreamflight office (see bottom or form for address).  Closing date for nomination forms is Monday 10th April 2017.
