HOLIDAYS • CALVERT TRUST • RIBBY HALL
Fun Away From Home
Holidays and Residential opportunities are so beneficial to our Next Steppers and are thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attends. Most importantly those who attend get the chance to try new experiences away form home which in turn affords parents and carers a reassuringly well-deserved break: We use our own staff who are familiar to and consistent with the individual’s needs.
“The residential was a great experience for myself. Getting to see the Next Steppers in different settings and seeing them achieve so many different things such as sailing on a catamaran, zip wire, bush trials etc. Seeing how much fun they had and how very enthusiastic they were to try every different activity. Everyone was so relaxed and lots of laughs were had by all.
There was one moment that will stay with me forever: A Next Stepper was going for a ride on a horse and cart for the first time ever. Her face was full of wonder and awe. Seeing how much she was loving the experience reduced me and a colleague to tears. It was such a special moment. I would definitely go to the Calvert Trust again”.
