Together In Song – gospel choir

TDS is working in partnership with local black led churches, choir leader, Kadria Thomas, and Dawn Edge from the University of Manchester to run this pilot project. Its aim is to reduce social isolation in people living with dementia from the African Caribbean community. We hope that by offering a social singing group, run by a professional singer and choir leader, we might encourage people to overcome feelings of embarrassment or denial about their cognitive difficulties and come and have a good time. We hope that a relative or friend will encourage the person with dementia to attend and that they too will enjoy having fun socialising and singing with others.   We are now meeting each month at HIBISCUS COURT, 16 Sedgeborough Road, Moss Side M16 7HU.  The dates are as follows:  14 May, 11 June, 9 July, 13 August, 17 September, 15 October – and we meet at 3pm
