Bespoke trips for groups of 6 people or more.
What is a tailor-made group trip?
VoluntEars’ Tailor-made Group Trips are bespoke trips to one of our destinations for groups of 6 people or more.
You can choose the trip’s start date and exactly how long you’d like to stay.
The typical trip length is 2 weeks, but with a Tailor-made Group Trip we can shorten or extend this to meet your needs.
All trips include an experienced BSL Communicator
What will we do?
Like our standard 2 Week Group Trips, our Tailor-made Group Trips, usually combine some practical renovation work at a local Deaf school, time spent doing fun activities and games with local D/deaf students and tourist visits to see the highlights of your chosen destination.
By arranging a bespoke trip for your group, the exact schedule can fit in with the interests of your group. We will discuss options with you before the trip.
These trips are ideal for schools, university and community groups.
