Our guests tell us that holidays at our centres help to relieve the stress of everyday life as well as giving them the chance to recharge, relax and rediscover themselves.

We also know too many disabled people and carers never get a break. Ever.

56% of disabled people and carers have said they simply can’t afford to take a break and the cost of living crisis has put the prospect of a break even further beyond the reach of many of the people who most urgently need a break.

This is why Revitalise has launched a special appeal to raise £250,000, an amount that could subsidise every guest’s break at one of our holiday centres for 10 weeks. Any support you can give will help us ensure more disabled people and carers are able to get the break they urgently need. Thank you.

Why support Give me a break

Funding for respite breaks needs to be protected. Without something to look forward to, more caring relationships will break down. This isn’t just a holiday. It’s a lifeline.
