The Choir With No Name

The Choir with No Name runs choirs and builds joyful singing communities with homeless and marginalised people, around the UK. Singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build confidence, skills and genuine, long lasting friendships. What we do is simple: our choirs meet once a week for a cuppa and a catch up, we then sing our hearts out for an hour and half, and sit down together afterwards for a hot meal cooked by volunteers. We perform regularly at a whole load of different places, from local homeless hostels to the Royal Festival Hall and everywhere in between. 

 

Our choirs are a supportive, safe space for people going through a tough time to be among friends, where they can experience the joy of singing together, have fun, build confidence and skills, and feel more able to tackle life's other challenges, such as securing housing or finding work. Volunteering is a brilliant opportunity to be part of a really supportive group in your local community, make friends and have fun singing your heart out. From cooking meals to supporting members at rehearsals and gigs, it's a brilliant way to have fun, meet new people and make a difference.

 

No. of people required: 1-10
Location: London, Liverpool, Cardiff, Coventry, Birmingham, Brighton
Experience required: None
