Thanks to The Baring Foundation for funding the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network

The Dementia Inclusive Singing Network is extremely grateful to our funder The Baring Foundation for their generous support.

The Baring Foundation works to protect and advance human rights and promote inclusion, funding projects in the arts, international development, and strengthening civil society. The foundation’s programme focusing on arts and older people has been instrumental in supporting the flourishing UK creative ageing sector, opening up opportunities for people aged over 60 to access high-quality arts events and activities.

A recent report published by The Baring Foundation, On Diversity and Creative Ageing, noted the need for continued development of arts provision for the full diversity of our older population. It features a case study about the work of the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network (originally the Dementia Inclusive Choirs Network), which highlights how the network has been developed to address issues of diversity through its inclusive approach.

The network will embrace differences between choirs and singing groups in Scotland, who may have different repertoires, structures, interests and skills, and support them to become dementia inclusive and develop their practice. It will work to support and encourage choirs and singing groups tailored specifically to people living with dementia and their carers, as well as community groups who would like to become dementia inclusive.
