Accessible Respite Care Holidays & Short Breaks in the UK

Revitalise is a national charity providing short breaks and holidays (respite care) for disabled people and carers. We also offer inspirational opportunities for volunteers through one of the largest, most diverse volunteer programmes in the UK. Our mission is to enable disabled people in the UK to access essential breaks with care, and provide inspirational opportunities for volunteers. We firmly believe that disabled people should have the same rights, freedoms, responsibilities and quality of life as those without disabilities

What we provide...

Revitalise (formerly known as Vitalise) is the largest provider of respite holidays with 24 hour on-call nursing care for disabled people and carers, as well as offering dedicated breaks for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Revitalise has more than 50 years of experience catering for people with over 150 different disabilities.

There are currently three Revitalise centres in the UK, situated in Essex, Southampton and Southport. Accessible excursions, activities and entertainments are an integral feature of each Revitalise break. The charity aims to offer holidays to suit all tastes through a wide range of themed weeks, from culture to sport to music, and give its guests the opportunity to make new friends and try new experiences.

With registered nurses, care staff and volunteers to hand, as well as specialist equipment and call systems throughout each centre, Revitalise guests can be sure they are in good hands.


All Revitalise centres have provision for both dual and single occupancy. Guests have a call system and television in their bedroom, as well as an en-suite accessible shower room with assisted bathing.

Revitalise Sandpipers

Here are just a few comments from people whose lives have been touched by Revitalise (or Vitalise, as we were still called when they shared their thoughts with us)...

So many people would view Revitalise as just a break but it’s so much more than that. Sally-Ann said that at Revitalise she didn’t even feel disabled – when she went water-skiing, it was just her and the deep blue sea and she can’t wait to go again.”
June Burden, mother of Sally-Ann, Netley Waterside House guest

The break gets me away from my daily routine and the same four walls of home. I socialise and see places of interest I would not otherwise have seen. It also allows my wife to have a well deserved rest of her own without the worry of my being cared for.” Albert Bridgman, Jubilee Lodge Guest

Whilst at Vitalise my headache cleared, my blood pressure went down to normal and my hip was free of pain for two weeks. Thanks so much to all the staff who helped with Ray and gave me a stress free holiday.” Janette Foster, Netley Waterside House Guest

I attempt to get away as often as possible to one of the three Vitalise centres. The care and attention paid to the guests is second to none. I would recommend Vitalise without any reservations. The attitude of the staff and the organisation from Vitalise makes a happy atmosphere, which one can see in the faces of the guest. Having visited Jubilee Lodge on seven occasions, I did find myself thinking as I arrived that I was coming home.” John Turner, Revitalise Guest

Being a carer means that all your needs come second, but at Vitalise I had tea in bed, a shower before breakfast, meals cooked and served to me, friendship, outings, hugs. I became a different person. And why? Because somebody else cared and coped with all the needs of a man I love dearly.” Betty Tring, Netley Waterside House Guest
