Christies Care’s Circus for people with Learning Disabilities

Christies Care, the national in-home care provider, worked with Circus Petite, a new Suffolk touring Circus, to put on a special FREE performance for people with learning Disabilities and adults with Autistic Spectrum Conditions at Woodbridge Rugby Club on Monday 3rd October.

Over 100 guests gathered in the bright blue and yellow circus tent to enjoy a specially tailored performance by Circus Petite, the brand new touring circus from Ipswich. Acts include the amazing Justo the Clown, jugglers, slack rope walking, hula-hooping, unicycling, magic, diablo and much more.

Christies Care’s specialist Learning Disabilities team advised the Circus on how to ensure the performance was appropriate and enjoyable for the audience. Afterward the groups enjoyed a buffet in the club house with the performers. The event was generously supported by Woodbridge Rugby Club, home of the Wheeled Warriors wheelchair rugby team, who provided their facilities for free for this performance.

Lin Barnes, registered manager at Christies Care explains: “We share a desire for inclusivity with Circus Petite and Woodbridge Rugby Club. We saw an opportunity to work together to bring this fabulous circus to an audience of people who have learning disabilities. Thanks to the accessible facilities at Woodbridge Rugby Club and the open mindedness of the team at Circus Petite, we’re enabling more people to have a great community experience.”
