A project ran by disabled people, for disabled people in the community!
Through local consultation, we intend to shape and improve our current services/short breaks. 80% of 1000 families, in just over 2 months, have already told us they find holidays are often in-accessible.
Therefore, we are seeking initial funding to offer an accessible staycation with a bungalow, onsite carers quarters, a swimming pool and gym and a community resource hub for disabled people and develop other holiday lodges on the 14 acres of land in the future
The Butterfly lodge complex will be at the old Fir Tree Farm in Sedgefield on private grounds and your funds will help us raise funds to purchase the property and hit the ground running to those most vulnerable in a response to isolation in disabled people that is worse due to Covid 19. It will enable us to expand our existing services such as Sit to be Fit and Spa therapy and our disability volunteering programme as well as community activities that will bring families together.
The complex will offer onsite care support, additional leisure/ community services also (such as yoga, fitness and employment programmes), to promote well- being. Our future plans include a an accessible play park, family events and further accommodation development with planning permission already granted for stables and a expansion
