Join our events

In addition to dozens of opportunities in Villages and Schemes each week, ExtraCare also arranges large scale events where all of the locations meet for a spectacular day of activities and entertainment. Residents, friends, relatives and guests are all welcome.

This is a great opportunity for residents and friends to meet new people, be entertained or learn a new skill.

ExtraCare try and cater for as many different people as possible by varying the events each year. 

Residents have the chance to meet up with our other locations for several special occasions each year, including a Christmas event, craft competitions and talent showcases.

Challenges

For those wanting to pursue even more active lifestyles, ExtraCare aims to support and encourage residents to get even more out of life with a selection of amazing activities for the more adventurous. From looping the loop in a glider, walking with wolves, performing on stage at Birmingham's Symphony Hall or wheelchair abseiling, there really is something for everyone!
