Respite Holidays for people with learning disabilities - Yellow Submarine
Yellow Submarine is a registered charity that provides holidays for adults and children with learning disabilities across the South East. This also gives respite for carers/parents
For young people (11-18), we run an ambitious school holiday programme, youth clubs, a breakfast club and residential holidays. Our goal is to help teenagers transition into adulthood and therefore able to access mainstream services, socialise independently and engage in meaningful work. In short, to be able to ‘do more’ but to ‘need less’ from the state or charities such as ours.
For adults, we provide real-world training and employment opportunities, a group called Launchpad for young adults to peer-support one another to socialise & use public transport independently and residential holidays throughout the year, which are often young adults’ first sustained time away from home.

We use various large cottages and farmhouses in order to allow holidayers to socialise with each other at the same time as having enough space to relax and spend time alone if they wish. Each cottage is different (we have even stayed in a lighthouse!) so if you have a particular need please contact us so we can make sure the holiday you wish to go on is accessible and suitable for you.
