Live Life Go Further

During this time, RSBC recognise that you may be finding it difficult to keep occupied, stay active and connect with the community - So that’s why RSBC has moved online! We have put in place some virtual activities to keep you all engaged and connected. See below for what we have planned this week.

Our online sessions will be run via the communication app Zoom, which you may be familiar with at this time. All you need to do is download the Zoom app, either on a laptop or phone, click the link the meeting you will attend at the right time (which will be sent to those young people who have confirmed attendance) enter your name, which will appear on screen – it’s THAT easy, no need to sign up!

Please note: All sessions are password protected and moderated by RSBC staff, so are a fun, safe place for VI young people to connect.
To register your interest for virtual sessions or have any questions please contact lauren.watson@rsbc.org.uk 

We’re really excited about what we’ve got coming up, and will be running virtual sessions weekly, to help support the young VI community at this time!

If you have any suggestions or questions, or if you have any trouble accessing the timetable, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
