Disaway relies on voluntary help to achieve its objective of providing disabled people with holidays. Each helper is asked to look after the needs of one holidaymaker during the holiday. This will include helping with amongst other things, needs like washing, feeding, dressing and helping in the toilet. It is the helper's responsibility to ensure that the holdaymaker gains the maximum possible enjoyment from the holiday. Members of the Disaway Council of Management are always on the holidays as volunteers and will help with advice, guidance and support. Should you be an inexperienced helper we will endeavour to allocate you to a holidaymaker needing minimal care and we make every effort to match helpers and holidaymakers with similar interests.
Helpers must be fit and strong and in most cases every applicant is required to complete a medical form and acceptance is at the discretion of the committee. Minimum age limit for volunteers is 18 years. Children accompanying their parents will be at the discretion of the committee. Many people enjoy this type of holiday and previous helpers will vouch for their enjoyment of a fulfilling vacation in a friendly atmosphere. Helpers are asked to make a financial contribution towards the cost of the holiday. Please send £100 deposit with application form.
