Useful information

Community of Practice for for Activity Coordinators HELP Care Home Partners

Come and join us for our Community of Practice, a place to learn and grow together, developing new skills through evidenced-based education, equipping you in your practice to help improve the quality of the life of your residents.


Next session: Tuesday 16th January (online)

This is part of a year long Community of Activity Coordinators supporting each other in their roles and developing the support that they offer to residents. You are welcome to join us at any point during the year and we will provide you any information that you might need.

In previous sessions the group has enjoyed the discussions and opportunity to meet other people in similar roles across a variety of homes.

We have spent some time exploring someone’s identity and how we can support that as well as the effects of bed rest and inactivity. We explored the wonderful work that you, as Activity Coordinators, are doing to enhance peoples lives and maintain their capacity physically, mentally, socially and emotionally. We also looked at the challenges that you face in your roles and over the next few sessions we will explore how we can take positive steps to over come the challenges, taking inspiration from each other and problem solving as a group.

Who is it for?

This community is open to Activity Coordinators based in homes that are signed up as one of our HELP Care Home Partners.

Our HELP Care Home Partners are entitled to free HELP educational care home initiatives run by St Christopher’s and Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice.
