Abstract:

‘A Choir in Every Care Home’ is an initiative to explore how music and singing can feature regularly in care homes across the country. Funded and initiated by the Baring Foundation, it is a unique collaboration between 30 leading national organisations from adult social care, music and academic research. It is led by Live Music Now, Sound Sense and Canterbury Christ Church University.

These working papers distil the sharings and emerging learnings of both the working group and the consortium, to provoke further debate and discussion. They are subject to change as the initiative develops. Together, they form the evidence for their actions and recommendations for future work.
