At Interchange Illawarra we believe holidays should be fun. We offer a selection of options available to participants at each location we visit and let the group choose what they would like to do. We do not schedule every minute of every day, instead we are responsive and flexible.
Support is provided by experienced disability support workers who are in many cases already familiar to the participants from other Interchange Illawarra group activities or previous holidays. Where possible we book houses or serviced apartments rather than hotel rooms and our support workers try their best to ensure that participants have a great time with their friends and get the most out of their holiday.
For more information about our Social Support Short Holidays, or to find out if they are the right fit for you, please contact our office on email@example.com or call 4227 1079.
