Breakaway Holidays is South Wilts Mencap’s own private travel company. Adults with learning disabilities can take supported holidays overseas and in the UK.
Breakaway organises all aspects of the holiday including carers; we have a regular band of these, most working within the care sector in Salisbury. Our guys pay for the cost of the holiday plus 10% booking fee; all other costs are covered by SWM with money made in our wonderful shop in Catherine Street, Salisbury.
Our Guys have a great time
Everyone deserves a holiday and a change of scenery
Time away offers respite for carers – they need time off too
“I like visiting new places and shopping!”
“We love to drink ‘Sex on the Beach’ cocktails”
The carers provide practical and emotional support to people who would otherwise not get a holiday.
“By day we do fun activities like boat trips, jeep safaris and waterparks!”
“what goes on in Benidorm stays in Benidorm”
“I would do 2 holidays a year if I could”
Breakaway also organises up to two theatre trips per year to London’s big shows – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mama Mia, Cats and the like. We also enjoy the theatre in Southampton and Bournemouth.
