Having fun


in Care

What is there to do?

Nuffield Health

Introducing Move together - free, fun fitness sessions for 11-16 year olds.

If you know a young person who is looking to have some fun this summer, our free sessions are a chance to try something new, whilst getting active.

From Zumba to dance, combat to yoga, there's lots of new activities for them to discover.

Simply find your free nearest Move together session and register your child’s attendance.

Sessions will take place every week over the summer holidays at local parks and community centres across the country, so there's plenty of opportunities to get active. Family and friends are welcome too, but must complete the registration form and be over the age of 11 years old to take part. Come along and get active together. It’s time to Move together with Nuffield Health.

Connect & Create

Wolverhampton Virtual School, in conjunction with West Midlands Virtual Schools, is delighted to bring ‘Connect & Create’ to our children and young people in care.

Connect & Create is a new online feature of the Artslink programme, which provides at-home arts & cultural activities specially selected and commissioned for care experienced children & young people. We know that the arts can present a hugely important opportunity for connection and creativity for care experienced CYP and their key adults during this isolating time, as well as helping to continue their learning.

So we hope you will dive in and give it a go – creative challenges, artist demonstrations, career pathways and a gallery to showcase some of the work produced. Activities will be updated regularly, so the site will grow in content, and you can sign up to receive updates.


Artforum is the gallery's group for young people aged 14-25 with an interest in art. You can take part in creative art workshops, trying out new techniques including papermaking, printing, filmmaking and 3D sculpture. It also gives you the chance to explore exhibitions further, see behind the scenes and help out with workshops, music nights and fashion events.

When is Artforum on?

1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month 5-7pm at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

It’s free and all materials and refreshments are provided.

You don’t need to book or let them know you’re coming - just drop in.
