The Stroke Association believes that everyone should have the same holiday choices, so the charity has partnered with Accessible Travel & Leisure to provide tailored holidays for stroke survivors and their families.

Following a stroke, a holiday can be therapeutic, but travelling is a lot more stressful and tiring when your mobility is limited. However Accessible Travel and Leisure are specialists in providing quality holidays for the less mobile. Accessible Travel look after every detail of the holiday from airline reservations to arranging care in the resort, to allow stroke survivors and their families to enjoy their break.

Martin, a stroke survivor who booked a holiday through Accessible Travel, said:

“After my stroke and having difficulty walking, I didn’t think I would cope with travelling abroad again. Accessible Travel dealt with all my concerns and needs and gave me and my family the holiday of my dreams.”

Monika Milne, Account Manager - Commercial Ventures at The Stroke Association said:

“The Stroke Association are delighted to be able to offer stroke survivors and their families tailored holidays. Some stroke survivors may have thought they would never have the chance again, but because Accessible Travel look after every detail of organising a holiday, all stroke survivors have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy their trip”.

Accessible Travel & Leisure will make a 5% donation to The Stroke Association for each completed holiday booked through the partnership.
