Holidays for older deafblind people

Holiday Plus holidays are week-long holidays for older people with acquired deafblindness who need additional support to access and enjoy a break.

Holidaymakers are supported by volunteers with a ratio of one to one, and a holiday leader who oversees the holiday group.

Our holiday groups are based in hotels in city, countryside or seaside locations across England and Wales each year.

Activities during the holiday depend on group preferences, but may include pub lunches, cream teas, days out visiting local attractions and sociable evenings with the group - it’s up to you!
