Online: Developed as a response to Covid and lockdown, the online programme was originally designed to provide some continuity of service when groups were not able to meet in person. However, it was found that the sessions provided a platform for participants to meet when factors such as location made it difficult to engage. The Online Activities Programme provides fun social activities, both daytime and evening and also gives the opportunity for the project to try different approaches and activities with the participants, some of which have developed into regular activities in their own right.

The programme is promoted monthly with a booking form and links are sent directly to participants’ email for them to log on.
