Oxfordshire Learning Disability “Have a Go” Festival moves online amid coronavirus outbreak.
Each year people from across Oxfordshire take part in the Oxfordshire Learning Disability “Have a Go” Festival – and this year is going to be no different.
People with learning disabilities, their family, friends and carers are invited to take part in online activity “Have A Go At Home” and try out a range of fun and ingenious activities to help keep fit and active.
The activities are fun and diverse, making use of everyday objects people already have in their own home. There’s no need to buy special equipment and there’s something for everyone.
From this Friday (July 17) and for the next six weeks a “Have A Go At Home” activity will be shared on Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust’s YouTube and social media channels for people to take part in the comfort of their own homes.
This online event coordinated by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and Access Sport Oxford will provide the opportunity for people to try new activities and sports and improve their health, just like the usual annual sports festival event.
Kirsten Prance, Associate Clinical Director of Learning Disability services, Oxford Health NHS FT said: “This year the focus of awareness week is keeping active at home. It is about having fun and making the most of the opportunities we have to enjoy good health even though the world we are in is a little different at the moment.
“We may not have been able to meet together at a sports field, but we are able to take part together thanks to a series of online videos which have something for everyone.”
- Look out for a new “Have a Go At Home” video each Friday at 10am.
