Outings and holidays
Outings and holidays
Taking a holiday, going on an outing or just taking a break can make a big difference. Some places offer outings to the seaside, shopping centres or other places. Others offer accessible holidays and some even offer grants or other financial help to help you take a holiday. But all breaks are different, so it's best to think about what you need and what you're looking for in advance.
