We can help you find local services and activities for your family

Categories in Overnights & Breaks Away

In ‘Overnights & Breaks Away’ you can search for accessible and inclusive holidays, accommodation, and respite options for your family. Things like:

  • Hotels, holidays and travel agents that are committed to making reasonable adjustments
  • Family-friendly events companies, campsites and holiday venues that are accessible
  • Places your child can go away for the night without you – from sleepover venues to foster agencies


SENDirect is growing daily, if you don’t find what you are looking for right away, let us know by filling in our feedback form and we’ll put a call out on social media as well as asking our contacts to help you find it. You can also tweet us directly at @SENDirectnews for help with your search.
