About the organisation

The Trust works closely with their contacts' at each hospital or organisation to select the patients they feel will benefit the most from the trip. Once the young person's treating consultant and our paediatrician have given consent that the young person is at no risk from joining the sailing trip, we send their parents travel information and an information booklet about how the trips run and what to bring. We phone every parent before the trip to discuss any special needs his or her child may have. Each four-day trip will have at least one qualified nurse on board as crew, along with medical support up from our paediatrician, who is on call for the duration of the trip.
