A new website for the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network

Mon, 24th Feb 2020

We are thrilled to welcome you to the new website for the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network! The network helps people affected by dementia to take part in singing groups and choirs across Scotland, and helps groups and choirs develop their work so they can become dementia inclusive.

If you would like to find a singing group or choir in your local area

We are currently working on a search and map tool that will enable you to find dementia inclusive singing groups and choirs in your area.

If you are a choir or singing group leader or organiser

On the website, you will find information, guides and useful links  to help your group become dementia inclusive or to develop your current work.

We run regular training events , which are listed on the website’s events page. We also run occasional dementia inclusive singing events for groups and individual singers, and information about these will also be featured on our events page. 

If you run your own public events, you can list them here too.

Join the network

Groups which welcome people living with dementia can complete a self-evaluation and registration form on the site to join the network. Member groups and choirs will submit information which will appear on the website via the search and map tool. These tools will allow people to find information about dementia inclusive singing groups in their local community.

If you would also like to join Making Music, once you have been accepted as a member of the Network you can take advantage of a 25% discount on membership of Making Music using the code ‘DISN’ until 31 March 2021.

We are proud that this website has been developed and designed using DEEP guidelines to ensure a dementia-inclusive approach. It has been tested by people living with dementia throughout the process of creating it to make sure the content and guides you find here are as accessible as we can make them. Please contact us if you have any feedback about the site; we would love to hear from you. The Dementia Inclusive Singing Network is part of Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing organisation. It is funded by the Life Changes Trust and The Baring Foundation, with support from Age Scotland, Making Music and Scottish Care.
