About Vibrant Communities
We believe that living well in older age is all about staying connected to the people, passions and pleasures that matter to you.
Our online experiences are here to help you do just that. Events and groups range from tours of gardens and galleries, to yoga and mindfulness, through to recreating classic movies, poetry groups, art clubs and talks - our ‘gin tour of London’ is always popular!
You can invite your family and friends to come and enjoy events with you, and you’ll get to meet new people who share your interests. Our creative hosts will welcome and involve you, helping everyone connect and share with each other. This is a million miles away from watching an event as an ‘audience’.
Join us to make vibrant online experiences part of your routine – accessible every day, every week or as often as you choose. The magic of running the experiences online is that even a global pandemic can’t get in the way - so let’s get started!

Support and training for activities coordinators
Vibrant Communities also offers ongoing training, development and support for activities coordinators to help them plan for, and deliver, personal meaningful engagement.
Our weekly online support package helps activities staff to be more confident and better equipped to deliver personalised, meaningful engagement activities for people living in your care home.
Vibrant Communities is a social enterprise from the team behind Ladder to the Moon, a recognised provider of innovative and impactful improvement programmes for the care sector. Over the past 20 years we’ve supported people who live and work in all kinds of care and independent living settings.
Vibrant Communities took shape in 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. We successfully piloted it in 15 settings in Winter 2020. We’re now all set to make even more communities even more vibrant!
