Going on Holiday

Holiday and Day Trip Guidelines

This is a new good practice guide for organisations supporting adults with learning disabilities to go on holidays or day trips. 

The guidelines are voluntary and are not an enforceable quality standard, however, they are a useful checklist for organisations and also for people with a learning disability, and their carers, when they are planning a holiday.

Provider organisations are encouraged to sign up to the guidelines, and to promote the fact that they are following them. People who are looking for support to go on holidays or trips will be able to recognise which providers have signed up to the guidelines by looking on the Sheffield Help Yourself website where their details will be updated with this information.

If you are a provider and you wish to sign up to the guidelines please contact the Partnership Board Support Team on 0114 203 9325 or email the team on  They will make sure that your details are updated on Help Yourself
