Community Choirs led by Vicky Sweeney and Kate Rowe
Inclusion is central to our principles and we take care to make sure everyone can access our singing
Before you come
If you don't feel happy to just 'drop-in' please contact us so that we can talk through what to expect
in our singing sessions and address any support needs you may have.
Below are the things we have attended to in our planning however if there is anything else you need
support with please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Our choir sessions are in buildings with no steps or steep ramps to the front door and the facilities meet
minimum access standards. However you might want to check for yourself to make sure it is right for
you. We'd be happy to arrange a pre-visit to the venue for you and feedback any suggestions you make
We sometimes use an upstairs room if we divide into smaller groups. There is a stair lift however we
ensure that anyone who would prefer not to go upstairs is able to stay on the ground floor for the whole session.
We always welcome people to sit down and rest whenever they need to during our sessions and we always offer to
move chairs into position for people preferring not to stand.
While we often teach short songs completely aurally, we also use printed word sheets to teach longer songs.
These are printed in black ink, using at least a 12pt font, on white A4 paper. If you would like us to
provide song parts in any other format, please talk to us and between us we will find a way to support your
participation as best we can.
Sometimes singing can be an emotional experience and participants may get upset or cry. This is fine!
You may leave the room anytime you like, or stay in the room with your feelings. Whatever happens, the
song will carry on until you're ready to be welcomed back into it.
