Community Choirs led by Vicky Sweeney and Kate Rowe


Inclusion Statement


Inclusion is central to our principles and we take care to make sure everyone can access our singing sessions equally.

Before you come

If you don't feel happy to just 'drop-in' please contact us so that we can talk through what to expect in our singing sessions and address any support needs you may have.

Below are the things we have attended to in our planning however if there is anything else you need support with please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Venues

Our choir sessions are in buildings with no steps or steep ramps to the front door and the facilities meet minimum access standards.  However you might want to check for yourself to make sure it is right for you.  We'd be happy to arrange a pre-visit to the venue for you and feedback any suggestions you make for improvements.

We sometimes use an upstairs room if we divide into smaller groups.  There is a stair lift however we ensure that anyone who would prefer not to go upstairs is able to stay on the ground floor for the whole session.

We always welcome people to sit down and rest whenever they need to during our sessions and we always offer to move chairs into position for people preferring not to stand.

Singing

While we often teach short songs completely aurally, we also use printed word sheets to teach longer songs.  These are printed in black ink, using at least a 12pt font, on white A4 paper.  If you would like us to provide song parts in any other format, please talk to us and between us we will find a way to support your participation as best we can.

Sometimes singing can be an emotional experience and participants may get upset or cry.  This is fine!  You may leave the room anytime you like, or stay in the room with your feelings.  Whatever happens, the song will carry on until you're ready to be welcomed back into it.
