Kira Getaway Weekends

Weekend Getaways for people with disability in Perth

Kira Community Services recently kicked off Getaway Weekends.

One of the key objectives and outcomes of respite or short-term accommodation is the opportunity for people to experience meaningful periods away from family (and significant others) to strengthen and maintain the capacity of families to provide support and care.

Kira already has the well-established retreat weekend at Kirk House.

With the implementation of this new initiative, not only is there a greater potential to offer more respite places, there is also the opportunity to learn and have fun experiences in new environments.

The Getaway Weekends simply involve selecting a short-term accommodation option.

For example, the stayz lists a number of property types that may be suitable options. These include apartments, cabins, campervans, caravan parks, chalets, cottages, farm stays, hotels, motels and lodges, etc.

Our first Getaway Weekend was held in May and involved a ‘ladies’ weekend in the beautiful surrounds of the Swan Valley. And while the weather was wet, the ladies had a great time checking out the local sights.

Let us know if you are interested in joining us for upcoming Getaway Weekends.
