The Leavers Coulson Trust has been making it possible for disadvantaged children and young people to attend Christian residentials for nearly 40 years. Applying is simple - an online application form invites you to introduce your Christian youth group and the residential activity and give a few details about the individual (7-19 years) and their financial and social needs. Trustees aim to answer within a week or two. Click on the image to visit the website for more information.
