Holidays & camps
Memories of holidays are typically characterised by enjoyable travel, trips and new experiences.
In contrast, for people with disabilities, time off is too often defined by isolation and frustration.
Misgav’s holiday projects transform the holiday experience for women with disabilities, equipping them with valuable life skills, independence, and improved health and wellbeing that benefit them throughout the year. They come home with lots to share, new friendships to enjoy, and memories to cherish long after the bags are unpacked. Their family members also greatly anticipate the respite opportunities.
Two weeks of trips, activities and social activities in a different rural or coastal location every year.
A week-long sleepaway experience packed with memorable moments.
Educational and enjoyable trips any time users need some
friends and fun.
Entering the world of work alongside their friends and siblings was an unattainable dream for our users until we introduced our innovative employment programme. Tackling all the barriers to users’ employment, we provide IT and social skills training, and liaise with local shops, offices, schools and day-care centres to secure long-term employment opportunities. Our friendly, capable young women delight in their fulfilling routines and being entrusted with a real job; and they consistently prove to be pleasant, helpful employees whom the local community have come to expect and appreciate at various venues.
Misgav is a reliable, competent source of support in any area parents require, whether it is helping them apply for grants, offering advice, practical assistance, or liaising directly with Social Services.
Caring for a loved one with disabilities involves a daunting amount of paperwork, and endless discussions and negotiations with local authorities and other professionals. Misgav is a reliable, competent source of support in any area parents require, whether it is helping them apply for grants, offering advice, practical assistance, or liaising directly with Social Services to secure the care packages users and their families rely on to get through each day.Read more about us
