“At first I was a little scared but when we got there I was fine. All of my friends and staff want me to come back my best part of the holiday was all of the activities”.
– Jamie, Reach holiday, January 2020
Every year we aim to offer a choice of two supported holidays and some day trips to help clients get away for a few days and offer their families and carers some respite from caring responsibilities. Our previous holiday destinations include Llandudno, Suffolk, Eastbourne, Blackpool, Great Yarmouth and the Peak District.
During the 3-night breaks, clients get to practice their communication and social skills, try exciting new activities and – most importantly – relax and enjoy themselves in a safe and supportive group. Each holiday is very person-centred to ensure that they are fully accessible for each client.
The time and care of staff and volunteers help make these holidays affordable – without them these breaks simply could not happen. We urgently need funding to cover the extended staff time and volunteer costs. If you can help, please get in touch today!
