What is the Include Choir?

  • It is a choir where you can make a difference and help make the world a more inclusive place
  • It is a way to learn Communication Skills
  • It is a place to meet new people
  • It is somewhere that everyone is valued for their unique contribution

Anyone can join The Include Choir; our members include people with and without understanding or speaking difficulties.

We use Makaton signing when we sing, as well as lots of other Inclusive Communication techniques, so joining the choir is a great way to learn skills, as well as enjoying singing and performing together.

We rehearse every Wednesday. And there are other activities (online and in person).

The choir performs and runs workshops at a range of venues. Our members get involved in writing songs as well as performing and we use music as a tool for inclusion and learning about a range of relevant topics, including the Mental Capacity Act

Our activities are planned and assessed to minimise the risk of Covid19 transmission.

Want to know more?

The Include Choir uses video as a way of spreading the word about inclusive communication – and sharing the #WeTalkMakaton Sign of the week (which can be great for a giggle)

You can see performances on our YouTube Channel and songs that we’ve written too.
