Amazing holiday memories for Adam!
Having help in the form of a bursary allowed us to have a family holiday that we simply couldn't have afforded without financial assistance. It is reasonably easy to find adapted accommodation that we could book for a holiday but the question for us is always then what do we do while we are there. Calvert gave us that answer, suitable accommodation and varied activities. Having visited the year before we knew that it would be suitable and what to expect so it took a lot of the stress and worry away. It is hard work organising and packing everything for a child with complex needs but being able to use equipment such as hoists and having a laundry room and drying room was a big plus for us. It is great for my son to try so many different activities that we don't easily get to do anywhere else. For me Calvert is a safe place, where my son can be himself, where no one judges or stares, where everyone encourages each other. This means we can relax and enjoy time with my son, we can celebrate what he can do, we don't spend the week apologising to people that we need to get the wheelchair through or need space for a wheelchair at a dinner table or saying sorry for the noise he is making. This is what makes Calvert special and we have created some amazing memories from our holidays with you.
