Staff and service users from Vibrance recently joined in the party at Wanstead rugby club to celebrate learning disability week. It was also an opportunity to promote the charity’s services.

Vibrance staff held a stall at the Festival in the Park to provide information to potential new service users and to network within the community.

Ilford based, Vibrance, supports over 850 adults throughout London and the South East with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs, offering a range of community services, low-support housing, nursing and care homes, short breaks, supported employment and self-directed services.

The festival, which was held at Eaton Manor Rugby Club, was a fun filled day with live music, sport taster sessions, vintage cream tea and art and music workshops. Several Vibrance service users attended the festival and had great fun getting involved with the music, and DJ’ing at the event.

Jane Blair, Vibrance’s outreach service and development manager, said: “We had a brilliant day at the Festival in the Park. It was a fantastic opportunity to share what we do and to network with our local community.

“I am thrilled that some of our service users attended the festival and had the opportunity to join in the fun and enjoy the party atmosphere with everyone. They had a great time getting involved with all the activities that were going on throughout the day.”

Vibrance employs around 400 people and was named in The Sunday Times ‘100 Best Companies To Work For’ in 2012.
