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. 


Who can nominate?

Only a medical professional responsible for the child’s care can complete the nomination form.  Please note that the forms need to be authorised by the child's Consultant or family GP. 


The nomination process

Please click here to download a nomination form, or you can request one by email or by phone 01494 722733.  Please ensure that you read our Medical Director's letter by clicking herebefore completing the nomination form.  Nominations for this year's trip (13-23 October 2018) are now closed. Nominations for the 2019 trip will open in early February 2019.


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 in 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.
