About this cause
We work in partnership with trusted refugee support organisations to ensure a sustainable home for free singing groups, including songs from around the world in different languages. We empower participants by encouraging them to share songs from their own countries and cultures, design and evolve sessions with participants, offer opportunities for local singers to volunteer, and bring people from the community together. We believe that singing has the power to bring people together across social and cultural divides.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Singing together improves wellbeing, reduces social isolation, and empowers local communities to connect and support each other. Voices Welcome creates an inclusive, safe, and welcoming singing group for refugees and volunteers from Southwark to ensure refugees feel welcome and connected to their local community.
