They use music and the arts as a catalyst to break down barriers, reduce isolation and enhance well-being. Their work includes those who are marginalised or excluded, such as displaced people and those seeking sanctuary, people facing mental health challenges, the elderly, the financially disadvantaged and socially excluded. They know that choirs are an incredible way to build community, improve mental health and build empathy and therefore choral singing is a big part of our work.
