Virtual activity groups for the Ataxia Community
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives, and lockdowns and social distancing have meant we are now unable to do many of the social activities that we used to enjoy.
At Ataxia UK, we wanted to create social activities that are safe but help the ataxia community to stay connected with each other. So we created Now That’s What Ataxia UK Calls Lockdown – weekly social activities that you can join from the comfort of your own home. The sessions are created and hosted by the InControl team and our wonderful volunteers, and cover a range of topics from the world of Film, TV, Music and Books.
Despite lockdown restrictions gradually lifting, these sessions have been so popular that we’re keeping them going! These sessions are held every Friday from 1pm-2pm on Zoom, so you can even participate in your lunch break if you’re working from home. Each week has a themed topic to discuss, and watch related clips or listen to music.
