Diana`s Supported Holidays
Providing supported holidays for adults with learning disabilities - now booking for 2016




This is us!

All our staff are qualified or in the process of qualification and are both CRB and reference checked.  We keep up to date and we all use Makaton.


 Diana Saunders

Diana started Diana's Supported Holidays (DSH) after a move from Essex to Blackpool.  She set up a hotel and got requests from people who had previously been supported by her to come and visit.  This proved a problem as their own staff were unable to support them.  Diana arranged for local support to enable the trip and the idea for Dianas supported holidays was born.  Now DSH is based in Broadstairs and concentrates on holidays in both the UK and abroad.
Diana has over 25 years experience in the care industry. She began working in mental health, managed a home for the elderly before moving in to social work where she worked for many years. After undertaking a Management In Care course she managed four homes for people with learning disabilities.
Diane's training and qualifications include:   Management for Care, contemporary British family and family interaction, rehabilitation, mental illness, first aid and moving and handling.

 Lana AY

Lana is probably the first person you'll speak to at Diana's.  She has been with DSH from the beginning and many will have met her on one of the holidays.  Lana worked as a support worker for Mencap before joining Diana's.  She was part of the original support team but after starting her own family she now works as the Administrator.


 Lee Page


Lee has had over 20 years experience in social health care and has worked for the health authority, social services, voluntary and private sectors. He started his career as a support worker and soon qualified as a registered manager before holding senior management positions across various organisations. He has worked as a college lecturer in healthcare, is a regional Makaton tutor and now a freelance trainer and coach working across all sectors of the care field.


 Rodney Da Silva

Rodney has been with the team at DSH since 2002 and has supported holidays in Blackpool, Lake district, Paris and Florida.  He has worked in both learning disability and support of the elderly sectors and continues to work alongside his DSH role.


 Brenda Honeybun

Brenda has over 25 years experience in health and social care and has worked accross all the main areas of the sector.  She has supported holidays in Blackpool, Paris and Florida for Diana's and will be with us again this year!
