Holidays play a big part in our residents life. Each resident will have at least one main holiday each year. Liaison with family members is key in enabling us to ensure that the resident goes on the holiday which is right for them.
Whether it’s an activity based holiday, spa break, quiet country cottage or a holiday to the seaside each resident’s individual needs are taken into consideration.
Calvert Trust – Exmoor
Calvert Trust Exmoor, enables people with physical, learning, behavioural and sensory disabilities to experience exciting, challenging and enjoyable outdoor activities. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of Exmoor National Park and a short distance from the North Devon Coast, their award winning centre welcomes guests of all ages and levels of ability. The fully accessible centre is registered with the AALA, and accredited to both the AHOEC gold standard and the CLOtC quality award. Their highly experienced instructors are qualified by national governing bodies such as the British Canoeing, RYA and BHS and are specially trained to work with people with learning disabilities.
Blackpool, Weymouth, Bournemouth? We’ve been to them all. Staying in accommodation suited to the groups needs a trip to the seaside is normally a 4 night, 5 day affair. Taking in local attractions, toe dipping in the sea and the obligatory fish and chips on the seafront this is a popular trip with residents and staff alike.
Some residents love a good tribute act. Abba, Queen, Take That? Whoever you want to see, we can source a few nights away staying at a luxury hotel normally with the addition of spa facilities. Hotels chosen can always cater for adults with learning disabilities.
Country Cottage breaks
For those residents who want a more relaxing break, these holidays suit them best. Normally in quieter areas with plenty of local attractions and the odd National Trust property, residents are away for 4 nights and 5 days. Evening meals are prepared in the cottage after full days out with the odd evening meal out at a local pub.
