Active Everybody Can, is an award-winning inclusion and disability service, providing everybody, no matter their need or ability, the opportunity to develop, thrive and achieve. We look to develop all holistically, ensuring barriers are removed for everybody to belong, enjoy, engage and grow in their community, helping them to live their best life. We encourage aspiration and hope through learning and moving with confidence from childhood to adulthood.
“Active Tameside really embrace each and every resident like a friend, like a family member. They put the community at the heart of their service, really understanding people’s individual needs and challenging themselves to learn new ways of working. What this service offers to Tameside residents is beyond words. It changes lives for the better, it impacts on families as well as individuals.”
– Councillor Eleanor Wills
Executive Member for Health, Social Care & Population Health
“We exist to make a significant positive impact on people’s lives. The people we support and work with are amazing – all unique in their own way and do everything with a smile on their face despite the complexities they are faced with. They achieve every single day; it really does put things into perspective. Ultimately, it is to provide our people with the same opportunities as everybody else – opportunities to live their best life.”
– Daniel Higgins
Head of Everybody Can
Everybody Can has established an intrinsic, golden thread that supports people with additional needs and/or a disability from the age of 3 throughout the life course. Our services encompass all walks of life including social care, community interaction, education and employment. Our strategy aligns with, supports and meet the needs of Tameside’s corporate strategic plan; starting well, living well, working well, ageing well.
For 16-24 year olds with an EHCP (Tameside residents).
The Supported Internship is an employment led programme which gives young people with additional needs the opportunity to develop their employability skills and progress into paid employment.
The Internship takes place over one academic year during term time and is based at Active iTrain/Tameside College. The student will be expected to go on work placement either at one of our Active sites/Tameside Hospital or on an external placement. The student will also gain a qualification in Employability, along with completing their Maths and English.

Fuel 4 Fun is an initiative set up on the back of HAF funding. The Fuel 4 Fun programme offers free holiday club places to young people on benefit-related free school meals.
On our camps, children can enjoy taking part in creative and physical challenges, and enjoy a free nutritious meal each day. In addition to this, each young person who attends will also receive a food hamper delivered to their home address, which includes ingredients and recipe cards for 5 well balanced and tasty meals for the whole family – supported by Tameside Children’s Health Nutrition team.
The camps take place every half term from 9:00am-3:00pm at Active Ken Ward, Active Copley, Active Oxford Park and Denton Community College.
