Holidays and breaks
Holidays and breaks
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 support to help you take a holiday. But all breaks are different. You will know what's best for you, so it's best to think about what you need and what you're looking for in advance.
