We’re the people who create revitalising breaks for disabled people and carers. And we’re asking you to join us in bringing their experience with us to life. We’ve been creating life-enhancing respite holidays for nearly 60 years. Our holidays also give carers the opportunity to have a break, too.

But we can only create these holidays with the help of our army of 1,400 volunteers every year. We rely on our volunteers to give their energy and love to our guests — and our guests often tell us that it was the volunteers that made their holiday truly special.

As an approved residential volunteering provider, we welcome volunteers completing their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
