Bay Foundation Disabled & Carers Trust (The)

Our Ethos Our founder, Mandy Bayliffe, was a terminally ill young mother who suffered complications during childbirth and had an incurable heart condition. The turmoil, frustrations and extreme hardships encountered by Mandy, her family and other families after such an experience are tremendous. All Mandy wanted was for something that you and I take for granted - a holiday where ALL the family can relax together. Our overriding aim is to make Mandy's wishes come true and to provide holiday/respite care for the sick and disabled, their carers and their families.    

Current objectives To continue to offer help, support and holidays for carers, their sick/disabled loved ones and children. 

Future objectives We would love to acquire holiday units around the country to enable us to continue sending families for these well deserved breaks. The first unit will be built in the Torbay area, fully equipped for a variety of special needs, including wider entrances and ramps for wheelchairs. We run purely on the hard work and enthusiasm of our volunteers. All monies are used for the holiday/respite care that we provide.
