Our work and impact

Our work and impact

We’ve been helping vulnerable, socially isolated older people for 12 years. Today, we have 10 weekly music groups and community choirs across York, in GP surgeries, churches, community centres, local care homes and in sheltered accommodation. Every year, we work with over 300 vulnerable older adults, and collaborate with local schools, colleges and universities to include hundreds of children and young people too.

Our impact in numbers

During 2020/21, we supported and involved 200 vulnerable older people who were previously regular members of our weekly music groups and choirs. We also involved around students from both of York's universities, as well as almost 200 children from 7 local primary and secondary schools. We have:

Delivered 85 online sessions and activities

Produced 3 virtual intergenerational concerts

Visited 110 members, volunteers, and sheltered housing tenants to sing on their doorsteps

Posted 290 CDs/DVDs to 36 members not online

Sent over 1,000 postcards, greetings cards and newsletters
