SALE based disability charity Stockdales is introducing a new project for children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and life-limiting conditions.

The charity’s Dream Days project will encourage people to apply and make their dreams come true.

Emma Morris, chief executive at Stockdales said, “The idea has been in the pipeline for quite some time and I’m delighted that we can now offer this very special wish-based service. People with learning disabilities are often over-looked when it comes to having their ‘wishes’ or ‘dreams’ and we want to change that. We want to help people to have those extra special experiences so they create a lasting memory. ”

Emma added: “It’s very simple, people think of what their dream day is and then fill in an application form and send it to us. Our panel will meet quarterly to go through the applications and agree which ones will be granted.

“We piloted the project over the summer and took one person to London for an overnight stay and a show and took someone on a canal boat fishing trip and helicopter ride, which went down a treat. The work is very much an extension of the work we already do, but it gives people the opportunity to think about what they’d love to do and then we make it happen for them, as well as boosting confidence and promoting inclusion.”

People can apply for a Dream Day by visiting where an application form can be downloaded. Alternatively, please call 0161 973 2296 or email for an application form.

Dream Days will cost in the region of £100,000 per year and will be met entirely by fundraising. Anyone wishing to support this project can donate online at or send a cheque made payable to Stockdales to 34 Harboro Rd, Sale, Cheshire, M33 5AH.
