“We want to show people with MS that there are real choices open to them if they want to try new things in a positive environment with a ‘can do attitude. Although Calvert Trust Kielder is for everyone, with activities for all ages and abilities, we specialise in providing accessible accommodation, support and activitiesfor disabled people.
“The MS breaks provide an opportunity to ‘taste’ what we offer and are designed to be as active and challenging or relaxing as you want it to be. They are a wonderful way to meet new people and make friends, learn something new and enjoy yourself in a relaxed and comfortable environment.”
