Criteria for Staying at the Retreat
Ripple Retreat – who can stay?
It’s Good 2 Give Board of Trustees agreed the criteria for staying at the Ripple Retreat
Any young cancer patient* and their family, based in Scotland, who is currently in treatment or up to a maximum of 1 year after active treatment
Bereaved families of young cancer patients, based in Scotland, within the first year after their loss
*Child/young person aged 0-18
The Retreat can accommodate a maximum of five people.
No pets or smoking allowed in the house or grounds.
The Retreat is in a remote location – 3 miles from the nearest town (Callander) along a single track road. It is therefore essential that families who stay have their own transport for the entire stay.
Stays are for a maximum of five nights and there is no cost to the family to stay.
If you would like to know more about applying for a stay or have questions then do get in touch.

Before you read any further let me show you a video taken by Tony Kettle, our architect and friend, who got a drone last week and used it for first time on Sunday! He got very lucky with the weather and the result is this stunning film footage!
Thanks Tony – we love it and believe so will everyone who watches it.
