About Vibrant Communities

We host live, online social groups and events so that people living in care communities can connect with other people who share similar interests and try new experiences.

We will help your care community innovate to deliver outstanding personalisation for individuals who are isolated and whose needs are hard to meet in your care community.


Our live, interactive events offer: 

  1. More hours of personalised engagement.

  2. New relationships based on interests and passions.

  3. A way for people to contribute and share their knowledge and skills.

CQC Good and Outstanding

Vibrant Communities contributes to key lines of enquiry (KLOEs) about how your service is effective (E1.3 and E5.1) and responsive (R1.3 and R1.4): 


  • Our innovative use of technology enables you to better meet individuals wellbeing needs.

  • We offer a robust process to both identify unmet needs and meet them.

  • We can support you to evidence your continual improvement to meet the social and emotional needs of your residents.

Our Unlimited Plus programme offers you 


  1. unlimited access to all our live events (5+ events every week)

  2. ongoing support from Vibrant Communities to assess individuals’ needs

  3. evidence from Vibrant Communities for your CQC PIC and evidence folders – this will include quarterly continual improvement reviews, reports and action plans.

Our story

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. During 2021 we expanded the range of groups and events we offered. We're excited to work with even more communities in 2022.
