New Horizons can arrange Supported family holidays, for families who require some extra support, or just want some respite of their own whilst still enjoying a family holiday to Jersey and the other Channel Islands.
Our Supported Holidays for Families to Jersey provide support and respite for families who find it difficult to go on holiday due to the level of care and support a family member requires whilst away from home, often resulting in them not getting the break they need.
We provide a range of tailor-made support packages that offer accessible holidays, a choice of accommodation options including camping, hostels or a large range of hotels including a specially designed and equipped local hotel that is accessible for individuals who require the use of hoists and specialist equipment.
Many of the hotels on the Island have rooms available that are wheelchair accessible meaning we are capable of providing support to families with varied needs, depending on the mobility of the individuals. Where required there is the ability to access, District Nursing services on the Island.
We know that there is nothing quite like a holiday to recharge your batteries and, just because you need regular care, doesn’t mean you should have to go without a break.
We are able to support individuals with various needs and conditions including Learning Disabilities, Autism, Physical Disabilities and individuals with moderate Challenging Behaviours and more complex personal care needs.
