Green Island Holiday Trust

The Green Island Holiday Trust provides supported holidays for local people living with a disability.

As restrictions ease and the COVID-19 vaccination programme rolls out on target, we are looking forward to being able to resume our holidays this summer.  We will be following government guidance at all times and putting appropriate measures in place to ensure that our holidays are COVID safe.

Due to the challenges of the pandemic, we are organising just three holiday weeks this year, one in July and two in September. During each holiday up to five guests will stay alongside a dedicated team of volunteers who provide twenty-four hour care and support. Together the group will share a week of friendship and fun.

The holidays will be based at Ellwood Cottages, located in the peaceful hamlet of Woolland, near Blandford Forum, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The superbly equipped, fully accessible cottages providing an ideal base for a relaxing break.

If you are interested in our holidays, please contact Wendy for further information.
