Resource: A Choir in Every Home report

Launched in May 2015, 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 33 leading national organisations from the worlds of adult social care, music and healthcare research. The findings from the first year of work were announced at the Arts In Care Conference on 24 May 2016, at an event jointly hosted by the National Care Forum and Care England. The report identifies the positive impact of music and the initiative has created a set of resources and toolkits to help both care homes and musicians to do more and better singing in care homes. These along with the research data and findings are available at www.achoirineverycarehome.co.uk.
