Online activities hub launches for people receiving care and support

What to do

Community Integrated Care, in partnership with leading sports, cultural and community groups, has announced the launch of a online hub offering free, live accessible activities every day.

From creative arts classes to PE and games sessions, provides a platform for people who access care and support to enjoy exciting experiences every day.

John Hughes, Director of Partnerships and Communities at Community Integrated Care, said: “These online activities have been built around the insight and interests of the people we support, so have been a real hit.  The sessions are full of joy, creativity, and excitement – from people across the UK learning the Thriller dance together for Halloween, to hundreds of people learning how to cook meals inspired by nations in the Rugby League World Cup 2021.

“What To Do is about doing accessible activities differently. The programmes are fun, fresh and person-centred. We are thrilled to now share these benefits with many more people through this unique website.

“Our thanks go to our partners at the NHS and Sport England, who have provided invaluable support to help make this possible. We are grateful too to each of our delivery partners for co-designing and creating such exciting opportunities.” 

Oliver Thomason, Sports Inclusion Assistant at Community Integrated Care, added: “These sessions have been amazing for me. I have a learning disability and I’m always looking for new fun and accessible things to try. This year, I’ve learned how to cook through these classes and I now love to make a meal for my family every week. It’s been great to meet new people and to try so many new things.”
