Learning disability super league star reaches out to fans at Anfield


Community Integrated Care is always looking for partnerships to enhance our services – not just for ourselves but also to benefit the wider social care sector. We have plenty of experience of working together with many different kinds of organisations, partnering with universities, government bodies, campaigns, advocacy groups and other providers nationally and locally.

Our sporting partnerships

Our charity’s thriving partnership with professional sports clubs brings fun and new experiences into the lives of the people we support. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we teamed up with the Rugby Football League and the Rugby League World Cup 2021 to create a special Arts and Activity Toolkit – an entertaining resource to pass the time during lockdown.

We have thriving partnerships with professional sports clubs such as football clubs Middlesbrough FC, Blackburn Rovers, Portsmouth FC, and Widnes Vikings Super League Rugby League team. Our work here has won recognition at the National Dementia Care Awards, 3rd Sector Care Awards and National Learning Disability Awards.

Ready to react when needed, we gladly welcomed the support of Liverpool FC Foundation and Widnes Vikings to help deliver much-needed PPE during the first heights of the pandemic.

How we work with partners

From taking part in the first government pilot for Direct Payments to advising the Government on our experience of reducing disability hate crime, teaming up can make a real difference.

Our partnerships always have one thing in common. They benefit adults who need support, whether their needs relate to learning disabilities, autism, mental health or a combination of conditions.
