There will be at least one committee member on each holiday that has nursing experience. Disaway is able to accommodate people with most kinds of physical disability aged between 16 and 80. Every applicant is required to complete a medical form and acceptance for the holiday is at the discretion of the Medical Officer. There will be at least one R.G.N. on each holiday. A volunteer helper will attend each disabled person and applicants are very welcome to bring their own helper if they wish. Disaway hopes that married couples, where one or both of the partners are disabled, will be encouraged to attend the holiday. An able-bodied person accompanying their partner will be accepted on the same terms as a volunteer helper. Children accompanying their parents will be at the discretion of the committee
The prices of the holidays have been kept to the absolute minimum, however Disaway at its discretion, may subsidise individuals in cases of exceptional hardship. Applications, together with a deposit, will be considered on receipt of completed application and medical forms. In most cases applications can only be accepted for one Disaway holiday each year, as it is the wish of the Charity if possible to provide holidays for those who would not otherwise have an opportunity to get away. Deposits will be returned to unsuccessful applicants, unless they wish to stay on the cancellation list. Holidaymakers who cancel at short notice will only receive a refund if their vacancy is filled, or Disaway receives refund from Hotel or Travel Agent.
