Will you have a holiday next year?
Exhausted and frustrated by the challenges of......
Extra planning, transporting wheelchairs and equipment, finding activities to suit ALL the family , paying for a carer (that's if you find one!), accessible accommodation, extra insurance costs.....
All at a price you can afford !
It's no wonder that many disabled people or families with a disabled child (including my own) find it easier just to stay at home.
Holidays and travel provide unique opportunities to experience new challenges and enhance quality of life. For parents and carers it is often the only time we have to recharge our batteries.
So, to make sure you get a break Charities provide grants to individuals, children and families to fund or part fund holidays.
And there are holidays out there! As with the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) more places than ever before are offering accommodation for the disabled.
Last minute cheap deals will be hard to find if you have specific needs......but there are canal boats, specialist activity centres, cruises, caravans, cottages, and hotels with accessible facilities.
To smooth the way access guides and information services provide useful advice and resources to help plan and organise a holiday to suit your individual needs.
So, Why wait?
