Destination Dreams is an annual group, organised and escorted holiday to Florida for children with a terminal or life-limiting condition or those fighting a life threatening illness. 

To qualify the child must be aged between 3 and 18 at the time of departure and must be a legal resident of the UK.  The child must also have a terminal, life-threatening or life-limiting condition. These are conditions where there is no reasonable hope of cure and there is a high risk that children or young people will not survive into adulthood. Household income (wages or salary) must be under £45,000 per annum and any savings, assets and investments are taken into consideration.  Families who have had a previous “Wish” holiday to Florida through either ourselves or another charitable organisation are not eligible.

Unfortunately we are no longer accepting applications for Destination Dreams. If you would like to be added to our enquiry log for our next trip then please email charity@caudwellchildren.com and provide your name, full address and postcode.

Please note that this holiday is always over subscribed and we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated a place.
