About the job
Looking for a holiday experience where you get to try new things, meet new people and help others do the same? Then get involved in one of our Sense Holidays.
Our holidays provide opportunities for holiday makers - deafblind children, young people and adults - to have fun, try new things and meet new people. Many families never have the chance to have a break from their caring responsibilities. They also give families a break from caring, and enables them to focus on their own health and wellbeing.
Our enthusiastic volunteers use their great interpersonal skills, willingness to learn, team work, flexibility, stamina, patience, humour and care to bring our Sense Holidays programme to life.
Our short breaks give deafblind children, young people and adults the opportunity to meet new people, gain new experiences, and have fun. The holiday is also an important break for both them and their family.
Your role on the holiday is to enable holidaymakers to get involved in activities and try new things, provide support with their daily routines and to enjoy the week and have fun!
Accommodation includes outdoor activity centres, cottages, villas and even barges! Each holiday is planned around the needs and interests of holidaymakers. Activities could include swimming, horse-riding, visits to local attractions, canoeing, dry slope skiing, meals out and nights in the pub ? the possibilities are endless!
