The Value of Organising a Break for People with Support Needs

    Project: Knowledge Exchange

    Description

    Supported travel and holidays are a new way of providing holidays and respite to adults with support needs and their carers. Working with Altogether Travel Ltd, a newly established company with a unique business model of personalised and supported travel and holidays, enabling adults with learning disabilities, physical, sensory or mental health impairments to determine their own holiday destinations, taking care staff with them, this project seeks to identify the scope for this approach to challenge traditional models of institutional based respite care.
