Assisted Getaways

Support to give you the freedom to explore

HomeSupports and ServicesAssisted Getaways

Travel is a brilliant way to try new things, meet new people and learn about new places.

It also gives you a break from your usual routine and a fresh perspective on things.

We don’t want your disability to keep you from experiencing the joys of travel, so we organise Assisted Getaway group trips to get you going to new places and seeing new faces. And the good thing is that these can often be built into your NDIS plan.

Assisted Getaways

The trips include:

Approved activities

We tailor our trips to the needs and interests of the participants, which means you can get a say in where we go and what we see. Each year, we ask participants where they want to go, and the winning place becomes the destination for our next trip.

Assisted Getaways

We provide a safe, structured and supported way to explore new and familiar places.

Our planned getaways are designed to build your confidence out in the world while giving you the opportunity to meet and make new friends and try new things.

If you’re keen to discover interesting places, see something different, and go on an adventure, we’ve got your travel needs covered.

Here’s a sample itinerary of a previous trip to give you an idea of the fun you’ll have:
