Temporary changes to the Include Choir!
Sadly, the Include Choir is no longer able to meet Face to Face, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, however, we continue to meet on a Wednesday evening online, and have decided to open our doors to anyone who needs a bit of a boost during these hard times – so if you would like to learn, refresh or practice some Makaton signs while you sing for fun (boosting your wellbeing while you create a more inclusive community), go to Facebook and request to join. We hope to see you there!
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, 7.30 -9 at St John’s Church, Redhill. You can download our Flyer for more information.
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

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.
