Holidays for Disabled People Ltd is a registered charity providing holidays for people with physical disabilities. We have been arranging holidays since 1959. The main feature of all the holidays is the warm atmosphere and friendship that grows amongst those involved.
Each year since 1961, we have arranged a one week holiday at a U.K. holiday centre. Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the holiday is the warm and friendly atmosphere and friendships that grow amongst those who have been involved.
We endeavour to provide helpers to assist the disabled holidaymakers with their physical needs, so that they do not have to rely on family or friends in order to get a holiday. This may also provide a well earned rest for those people who normally assist them at home.
The holiday is available for adults with physical disabilities either coming as individuals, with family members or with groups from homes, clubs or societies. The holidaymaker may bring their own carer, family member or friend to assist them with their needs. All are welcome. Unless otherwise notified, nursing staff will be present on the holiday, 24 hours.
Important update, 2018 holiday has been booked, please see 'current year holiday' for details.
