Welcome to the Principle Trust Children’s Charity

We are a Children’s Charity, based in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

We provide respite breaks to local underprivileged and disadvantaged children from North and West Yorkshire, particularly children with life limiting conditions, disabilities, or those facing financial hardship, trauma  or stress.


We work with the Local Authorities, Children’s Social Services, Children’s Centres, Charities and Schools to ensure that children and their families or carers who are most in need benefit from the respite breaks we offer.


We currently have three homes located at the Marton Mere Holiday Park in Blackpool. These provide week-long breaks to children all year round.
