Home: About


As a trusted charitable organisation founded in 2014, the ALA Green Charitable Trust works with and provides funding to charities and other not for profit organisations across the UK.

The trustees meet twice a year to consider and decide upon funding requests. Where possible, the trustees seek to visit the organisations they support to better understand their operations and potential needs. Such visits take place across the country throughout the year. The trustees also like to keep in touch with the organisations they have supported in the past to understand the impact their donation has made and how further funding could be utilised.

Supported by The ALA Green Charitable Trust since 2017

About Go Beyond: The charity which gives children and young people from across England facing serious challenges in their lives the chance for a break that lasts a lifetime.  On breaks under wide open skies in the countryside, Go Beyond’s expert staff and committed volunteers give children and young people who have been bereaved, abused or bullied, who are living in poverty or caring for loved ones the chance to escape their worries and pressures. To have the moments and experiences they need to believe in themselves and think beyond the day-today for a bigger, brighter future.

From splashing in the river in their wellies to braving the dizzying heights of a rock-climbing wall, each break is packed with activities intended to encourage self-belief and inspire adventure.  By getting out and getting involved, Go Beyond’s biggest hope is for each child to go home knowing they can achieve more than they ever thought possible, inspired by what the world can offer them and what they, in turn, can offer the world. Every break is totally free-of-charge for the children and young people.

Supporting Go Beyond: Since 2017, with the support of The ALA Green Charitable Trust, Go Beyond have been able to provide hundreds of disadvantaged children and young people, from across England, with a residential break at the charity's Daleside centre, set among the rolling hills of Derbyshire.  Children supported by The ALA Green Charitable Trust have the opportunity to grow in confidence, explore nature, learn new skills, improve their emotional, physical health and wellbeing and develop an early passion for the environment.

Beneficiary feedback: “When I get home from my Go Beyond break, I will remember that Go Beyond is a place to bring your true self” (Child attended a Go Beyond break 2023).  After experiencing a Go Beyond break, 81% of children and young people think there are many things they can be proud of (2022 Go Beyond children and young people’s evaluation).

About Happy Days Children’s Charity:  The charity provides activities for children from the North West of England who have a wide range of disabilities. These include children with a learning difficulty, an ongoing chronic / acute medical condition, children who have witnessed / experienced domestic violence / abuse, children who may act as a young carer for another family member and children who have mental health conditions. The age range of the children is from 3-17 and the children go out as part of a larger group to destinations such as a zoo, theme park, theatre, farm, museum, place of interest.

The charity also arranges for visiting theatre companies to go to special needs schools and perform to the children as many find it difficult to access a local main theatre due to their complex needs. The live performing arts experiences help to stimulate their sensory awareness and their social and communication skills. Another activity is a group activity holiday where the children will go for a 1-3 night stay at an activity centre with fellow peers and take part in physical pursuits and team building challenges. For many of the children it is a first time away from home and will help them with their independence learning.

The family breaks we fund for the children and their parents plus other siblings may either be a first holiday or one which they have not had for several years. The short breaks enable the family to go to a new environment and this will enable them to spend some quality time together in a peaceful setting.

All of the experiences we help to arrange will help the children and their families to take part in an activity more often enjoyed by the wider community and this will help them in terms of their future development as they move forward into adulthood with renewed confidence. They also help to promote social inclusion.

Supporting Happy Days Children's Charity: In the past 4 years, the support from the ALA Green Charitable Trust, the charity has helped 2,365 children to experience what life has to offer in the form of different activities,
