Hi, My son has autism, Down’s Syndrome and severe learning difficulties and is in supported living and I would like him to have a holiday at Butlins. He does not want to go with me and my wife and his care provider say they are unable to take him as none of their support workers are prepared to stay away from home (!). Does anyone know of an organisation that might be able to take my son at a reasonable cost?
Hi @Michael, there may be something here: http://www.disability-grants.org/
Hi @Michael. HFT publish a holiday guide every year that might help you find suitable providers: http://www.hft.org.uk/Supporting-people/Family-carers/Resources/2017-Holiday-information-guide/. I hope your son has a great time when he gets away.
Did you have any luck finding anyone to help with this? It would be great to hear how you got on.
