Holiday time is extra, extra cost for many accommodation service providers. Support costs are up, as residents are home. Frequently, support costs are extra high as all residents do not have their holiday breaks at the same time.
Group homes with five or six residents, may have each resident attending a different day service. Extra support has to be provided to cover the different holiday periods of the various day services.
Whereas, all day services could easily have standard holiday periods, like state schools.
Despite most day services are government funded, governments appear reluctant to insist day service standardise their holiday periods.
