Ellie's Haven conducted an online survey of families with disabled children which was publicised on the Ellie's Haven website and also by articles in newsletters and websites of Contact a Family, a charity, and the Parent Carer Council, a network of 300 families with disabled children in Cornwall and Devon.  The survey started in November 2008 and is still ongoing.  As of Dec 10, 2009, there were 70 responses.

The questions asked were:

Question 1: How important are holidays/short breaks to your family?

Question 2: How would you prefer to look after your disabled child while taking a short break or holiday?
