What is the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network?

The Dementia Inclusive Singing Network helps people affected by dementia take part in singing groups and choirs across Scotland. We know that singing is good for you and singing with a group is even better.

At a time when lots of older people are at home more or in care homes having to isolate, the network will help find ways for people to connect and sing together. If you, or someone you know, would like to sing with a group, the network will help you find opportunities. If you are a song leader or organiser, the network offers training and networking opportunities.  

View upcoming online training and networking opportunities on the Events page. To join the network, please complete the form on the Join the Network page.

“Singing is good for you… and group singing is even better.” (Voices Now, The Big Choral Census, July 2017). We want to share this with as many people as possible! 

This network is part of Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing organisation. You can find out more about Luminate by visiting the organisation’s website.
