Singing and Signing!
In November 2019, The Health Lottery team were delighted to visit the Include Choir team in Redhill! The choir were putting on their fabulous Big Sing event, described by choir founder Alix Lewer as “a chance to teach some signs and songs, break down barriers in the community and learn from each other!”

At our heart is The Include Choir – a perfect fit for social prescribing, as it combines the therapeutic and health benefits of singing, with learning / practising inclusive communication techniques
