Staff Supervision

Careaway Tours are supervised by qualified and experienced staff, who are familiar with caring for people with intellectual disabilities whilst on holidays, and are holders of  current First Aid Certificates, police checks, NDIS worker checks and public passenger authority checks.

Careaway has three different categories for the holidays dependant of the participants care needs. 1: 4-5 ratio on our Category ‘1’ holidays, 1: 3 ratio on our Category ‘2’ holidays, and 1: 2 ratio on our Category ‘3’ holidays (Please note if participant requires or it is necessary to have a higher level of care, cost will need to be negotiated.)

Careaway is unable to offer holidays to people with aggressive, challenging, violent or self-injurious behaviours on any holidays.

Careaway does not offer full assistance holidays.
