Nominate a child

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.  Please note that nominations for next year's trip open in January 2018, please refer back to this page at that time.

 

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 nomination process

Nomination forms for next year's trip can be downloaded from this page in January 2018 or requested by email office@dreamflight.org or by phone 01494 722733.  For reference, here's our Medical Director's Letter and a typical Nomination Form. 

 

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.
