SingAbout is a singing for wellbeing project that has been running Island wide for over ten years. The main focus of the project is to improve health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation through singing.
Sessions are inclusive and we invite anyone to come along and enjoy the joy that singing brings.
Volunteers play an essential role at SingAbout. They help to provide a welcoming environment for the participants. Some of our participants live with long term conditions such as dementia and may need additional help and support from volunteers to fully take part in sessions.
Volunteers are expected to assist with housekeeping tasks such as setting up the room ready for the sessions, serving tea, packing away at the end, and some basic administration tasks.
Volunteers will be expected to join in with the activity and offer assistance to participants who may require it, in an unobtrusive way.
Volunteers may also be asked to hand out song lyric sheets and musical instruments.
SingAbout volunteers work as a team in their group with tasks shared out by the practitioner.
