Let's give it a go!

Kia ora koutou katoa!

 

 

 

IHC has launched Let’s give it a go! where people with intellectual disabilities can come together through a series of fun and engaging online video sessions – including music therapy, drumming and sing-a-longs.

 

From talking to people, lots of whom live with family and some in our services, we found that you want to:

 

  • Spend time with people who are important to you
  • Experience something new or different
  • Learn new things
  • Create and make things
  • Be more independent

 

See our upcoming timetable below. This is all thanks to money and tech tools kindly donated to IHC by our donors, members and IHC Associations

 

Let’s give it a go! sessions are available to anyone with an intellectual disability in New Zealand.
