Accessible Holidays

Due to the amount of correspondence from people viewing our website complaining about us reducing the Accessible Holiday`s page to the ones only supplied by charities we have reinstated the others again.

I will say though that the D - F is a charity and the Holiday Companies that where advertised on this website have not paid a penny towards these adverts for their companies, we have copied them from other websites and magazines for the benefit of the disabled people viewing his website.

It was decided  by the D - F managment committee to ask for donation from these companies to continue having their adverts on our website, we that no responce from these companies so we took the adverts of this website, until now, and this is only because the viewers of this website have asked for it (we are still not getting any contribution`s from the companies advertised).

Find your accessible holiday stay

A recently launched website, accomable.com, helps you find accessible holiday accommodation around the world - and lets you filter properties to choose, for example, those with step-free access or a roll-in shower.

The website`s co-founders, Srin Madipalli and Martyn Sibley, met as children through a support group for children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), something they both have in common. They are working with tourist boards in the UK and abroad to list all kinds of accessible properties in one place and provide detailed access information about the property, the locality and amenities available. https://accomable.com/

Short Breaks Funding for Carers - Time to Live

A new funding stream is being launched for carers in Fife to help with the costs of taking a break from caring. The fund is called Time to Live, and it can provide assistance with a range of costs associated with short breaks such as transport, accommodation, leisure activities or supported holidays. This funding is part of the Short Breaks Fund, administered by Shared Care Scotland on behalf of the National Carer Organisations and the Scottish Government. CVS Fife is managing the fund locally with help from Fife Carers Centre, Crossroads Fife Central and Crossroads Dunfermline.


We are aiming to publicise this funding as widely as possible so a broad cross-section of individual carers can have the opportunity to make an application for funding. We are aware that many voluntary organisations work directly with carers; additionally, many organisations will have volunteers and members of staff who are carrying out a caring role. Our ebulletin also goes to a range of contacts in public sector agencies - we would like to encourage everyone to think about passing this bulletin on to relevant contacts.
More information - on the aims of the Time to Live scheme, eligibility criteria and the application process - is available on the CVS Fife website: www.cvsfife.org/ttl. Applications will be accepted from 1st November 2011, with the deadline for final applications being 30 September 2012.

Redcourt Supported Holidays

Redcourt Supported Holidays, part of St Christopher’s Trust in the Peak District offer holidays and short breaks designed specifically for people with learning disabilities

We have redeveloped the 19th Century Country House on our 5 acre site into a luxury hotel with en-suite guest rooms, bar, tea room, restaurant, gym,  games room, lounge and conference room.

Our holidays aim to promote inclusion, develop self-esteem and encourage participation.

We have put together holiday packages to suit a range of tastes;

·        Sightseeing Tours

·        Soap Opera Tours

·        Football Coaching and Stadium Tours

·        Peak Active (gentle walks around stunning local attractions)

·        Peak Adventures (outdoor pursuits)

Our Peak Adventures package includes activities such as Rock Climbing, Archery, Mountain Biking, Caving, Rafting, Abseiling, Sailing, Walking, Canoeing and Weaseling.  It has been designed to encourage and support people with learning disabilities to take part in exciting outdoor activities.  We appreciate that people have different levels of mobility and different tastes and we do our best to accommodate.  Please speak to us about our free taster sessions.

Our team has been providing holidays in the Peak District National Park for people with learning disabilities for over 7 years and the trust has been providing domiciliary care, vocational training and (more recently) supported living to people with learning disabilities since the 1950s. 

Redcourt support staff are on a 24-hour rota to provide basic assistance and this is included in the price of all our packages.  All our instructors, guides, drivers and support staff are qualified and experienced in the field of learning disabilities.

With the completion of Redcourt Country House Hotel we are able to bring every aspect of our holiday operations in-house which gives us control over availability of accommodation and price.  We offer choice, security, value for money and the opportunity to enjoy a range of fun activities from one central social base.

If you have any queries, we would be happy to discuss them with you on the phone.  You can request printed information to be posted to you or leaflets to be emailed to you.  If you like, you can view our details online too.  All our contact information is listed below.

Please pass our details to any members of your access panel or any other colleagues you think might find our service of value.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks.
