It’s party time! AFG hosts virtual celebration for 350 supported adults around the North West

Alternative Futures Group, a leading social care charity, hosted a digital ‘watch party’ event for the people it supports across the North West to celebrate the highlights of the past year and invite them to host parties in their own homes.

Over 350 people joined the virtual event on Thursday 25 January, which celebrated the best moments and milestones over the past year with a series of videos, as well as opportunities to dance and sing together.

To ensure the celebration reached every corner of its communities, the charity sent out curated ‘party boxes’ to the doorsteps of the individuals it supports. Each box was filled with party essentials including disco lights, decorations and props, transforming living areas into vibrant party spaces.

Natalie Willets, Head of Operations at AFG said: “We introduced this digital event to foster a sense of togetherness for the people we support who are based in properties and services across the North West, and to bring the joy of the celebration directly to their homes.”

“It was heart warming to see so many of the people we support coming together to celebrate the positive impact they’ve had on each other’s lives.”
