  • Mission statement

    Imagine never taking a break… this is the challenge that many disabled people and carers face everyday and Vitalise is here to help! We offer them the independence, freedom and choice to enjoy a break many other people take for granted, and which may otherwise be completely out of reach. We offer a trusted place for our disabled guests to enjoy a holiday, offering a break from the challenges and isolation they may face in their day-to-day lives; in an environment where they can socialise, share and enjoy time within the Vitalise family of guests, dedicated volunteers and caring staff. Vitalise is not just another disability support charity nor is it a care home. Our mission is to enable people with disabilities and their carers, access to an essential respite break. Vitalise has providing a crucial and unique experience for 50 years for disabled people and their carers.
