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 and a Log Cabin in Ribblesdale Park, Gisburn, where we provide week-long breaks to children all year round.




What We Do

Our respite holidays help give children the time and means to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Get Involved

Throughout the year we organise and take part in many events.  Find out what we have planned in our event calendar or organise your own fundraiser for us.  We will give you all the support you need.

Our Referring Partners

These are organisations that support our goal by referring disadvantaged and underprivileged children  for a much needed break.

The Principle Trust Log Cabin Appeal

In 2017 & 2018 we raised enough money to buy a Log Cabin located at Ribblesdale Park in Lancashire to provide even more respite breaks to local children with life limiting illnesses and disabilities.

We are continuing to raise funds so we can buy a second Log Cabin, which will enable us to send even more children on respite holidays.
