Connecting Couches

Bringing a range of online activities to people with a disability in the comfort of their own homes

Many people living with a disability already endure social isolation, but this has been further heightened by restrictions relating to the coronavirus.

It is a difficult time for all, but it presents an exciting opportunity for us to be creative, to look at new ways in which we can interact with others, meet new people and have fun.

Connecting Couches @ Give a Care delivers a range of online activities via Zoom to provide people of all abilities with the opportunity to try out new hobbies from the comfort of their own home. All sessions run for 30 minutes on the day and time indicated.
