Free Holidays for Carers

Holidays are offered to Carers without the person they normally care for so that they may have a proper Respite Break at one of our seaside caravans

THERE IS NO CHARGE for the caravan, although we do ask for a deposit of £50, which will be fully refunded once the holiday has been taken and the caravan and its contents are found to be in good order. 

We now have two caravans available:











» Newton Hall Holiday Park - Staining, near Blackpool



» Richmond Caravan Park - Skegness

A message from our Patron Miss Joanna Lumley OBE, FRGS

" Of all the unsung heroes in the world, carers come top of my list. It is humbling to read of the love, time and dedication they give so constantly to others: their voices are seldom heard, as they so seldom complain. When they DO call for help we must react at once, with support and understanding and gratitude. And lovely money: what seems like peanuts to larger organisations would be a godsend to the Respite Association, as it means that we can help ease the burden (which would be intolerable in our own lives) and bring some comfort, escape and freedom to those who give their all to others every day and night, week after month after year. These are my heroes: these are the stars I admire and applaud. Knowing that every gift to Respite will bring happiness touches me hugely.  I am so proud to be Patron of this fine charity. "
