Virtual Wellbeing Activities

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.

Here is a list of the upcoming sessions, simply click the link to register:

Friday 27 August – Latin Music 

Friday 10 September – Maggie Smith: Films and TV

Friday 24 September – Transporting Tunes (Music Club)

Friday 8 October – Travelling and Holidays with ataxia (Information Session)

Friday 22 October – TBC (Music Club)

Friday 29 October – Helen Mirren: Films and TV

Friday 12 November – Care Needs (Information Session)

Friday 19 November – Happy Valley/ Last Tango 


We hope these sessions will be informative, entertaining and leave people feeling a little less isolated while at home.

If you would like more information on the sessions or support with using Zoom, please contact We look forward to seeing you there!
