Since 2002, FunDays has supported a number of initiatives, these are:

Oak Field Summer School

In July and August the charity supports Oak Field School when it holds a 10 to 20 day summer school for children and young people with severe or profound physical and/or learning difficulties based at the Oak Field School. About 130 young disabled people enrol from both special and mainstream schools across the city and county. Every day they engage in a variety of group outings and activities, including drama, art, pottery, music, cooking etc. Artists and performers also work in the Summer School.
