Residential Breaks


The SASBAH Residential Breaks Programme

Residential breaks are organised regularly, several breaks a year for various sized groups of disabled people. They provide a holiday for different groups ranging from adults only, through children and young people, to families and those who need a break simply to offer respite for carers.

Each holiday is 3 – 5 days in length, and takes place at various suitable locations which have fully accessible facilities. All locations are thoroughly researched by SASBAH staff in advance. Every holiday includes a number of special attractions, such as entertainment, active pursuits, visits to places of interest, or a party. Sasbah's experienced staff accompany each trip, as well as a number of dedicated volunteers.

The holidays offer a happy and fun-packed break for everyone who takes part, and often result in significant increase in social and personal confidence. New challenges abound, and this helps to build self-reliance. There are opportunities also for informal discussions with SASBAH staff in a relaxed environment about any additional support needs, and (especially on the adult and family breaks) the time to share experiences and just find out ‘what works’ is invaluable.

Some examples of places we have been to recently are:

  • Lodge Hill Centere, Pulborough, West Sussex
  • Bond Hotel, Blackpool
  • Churchtown Farm Activity Centre, near Bodmin, Cornwall
  • The Queen Elizabeth Activity Centre, New Forest, Hampshire
  • Warner Village, Hayling Island

For further information on planned future breaks, please use the contact details below. We also welcome interest from potential volunteers who may wish to accompany groups on residential breaks, and help them make the most of their holidays.
