REVITALISE, known as the people who create respite holidays for disabled people and their carers for over 50 years, are pleased to announce a fantastic new partnership with Charitable Travel, a social enterprise and travel agency specialising in travel expertise and holiday organisation, whose mission is to help holidaymakers whilst supporting the work of UK-based charities around the world.

Charitable Travel allows you to book your chosen holiday bargain at no extra cost while donating 5% of the price to Revitalise. That means that your next holiday can give a disabled person the opportunity to have a holiday too, helping to provide disabled people throughout the UK a much-needed respite break. To book a holiday, please visit www.charitable.travel/revitalise

Andy Simons, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Revitalise, said:

“We’re so excited to join forces with Charitable Travel to raise funds to help support disabled people. Here at Revitalise, we create respite breaks filled with entertainment and new experiences backed up by 24-hour nurse-led care and full accessibility. Now you can book your next holiday while at the same time helping someone else to get a well-deserved break.”

Melissa Tilling, Chief Executive of Charitable Travel said:

“We are a fully financially protected and expert travel agent, and work with over 160 ATOL tour operators to offer you an incredible range of holiday options worldwide and superb value for money. I urge you when you’re thinking about your next holiday, to give us a call, try our service and prices. If you go ahead and book, 5% of your holiday price becomes a donation to help the great work of Revitalise. The best part is helping the charity doesn’t cost you any extra money!”

Revitalise have adapted their usual holiday service during the COVID-19 crisis by offering their facilities as a place to access vital respite for disabled people who need urgent care-supported respite after a long isolation. Revitalise are welcoming people no longer able to receive the care they need at home or if lockdown has been a struggle, with their mental health, anxiety or feelings of isolation.

Their efforts during the pandemic also include providing their Jubilee Lodge respite centre in Essex to the NHS, welcoming patients from local hospitals who are not suffering from the COVID-19 virus in order to free up beds for patients who are, relieving pressure on the NHS and ensuring the availability of space for more critical patients.

Many disabled people are supported by a family member, or private carer who visits them at home and can very quickly be at risk if that person becomes ill – unable to get support or even basic supplies. Revitalise centres are fully accessible, with equipment including hoists, profiling beds and airflow mattresses and the teams are comprised of Registered Nurses and Care Assistants.

Anybody worried about whether their care support at home can continue should contact Revitalise. To book a holiday through Charitable Travel, please head to their website.
