Become a Vibrant Community

We offer a proven way to help people in your care community connect with the people, passions and pleasures that matter to them.

 

What's on offer each week ranges from tours of gardens and galleries, to poetry groups and art clubs, through to mindfulness workshops, recreating classic movies, and themed talks and conversations. Our ‘gin tour of London’ is always popular! See our full list of events here

Our events are suitable for everyone and have been designed to include people living with dementia. 

People living in your care community can invite their family and friends to enjoy the events with them, and they’ll get to meet new people from other homes who share their interests.

 

Our creative hosts welcome and involve everyone, helping people share with each other. This is a million miles away from watching an event as an ‘audience’. It's person-centred, meaningful activity at its best, delivered by experts in the field.   


 "We're all about sharing life with each other. It’s about participation, not just being an audience member."

You can sign up for our unlimited programme, and get access to all our events, or you can just sign up for specialised weekly groups

 

There's more information about our programmes on our pricing page, and here is a quick guide to our programmes (PDF).

About us

Vibrant Communities is a not-for-profit project from 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, and the care communities we worked with. We're excited to work with even more communities in 2022.
