Activity Breaks are a great holiday option for people with learning disabilities and on the autism spectrum who can be most at risk of isolation.
For people who require support to go on holiday, the extra cost for a support worker can mean a holiday is unattainable. Just small amounts of money can go towards this support, pay for someone's travel or even their meals throughout the activity break. Any donations or funds raised will really make a difference and give someone the much needed break they deserve.
Activity Breaks are run by a charity called Outward, which exists to enable people with learning disabilities and autism spectrum conditions to experience new things, make new friends and lead interesting and fulfilling lives. And going on holiday is a big part of this.
The Activity Breaks are 5 days long and consist of getting involved in a range of activities like sports, arts and crafts, music, visiting local attractions, photography, nature trails, baking, pampering, and many other countryside pursuits. As well as time to relax and unwind from the stresses of day to day life.
Outward subsidise some of the holidays already, for people on limited budgets. However, they would love to be able to offer many more subsidised holidays across the year.
Anything you can give will go along way in helping us make this a bigger reality.
