Sing UK works with partners in the field of education, music and community development to deliver exciting, quality singing projects in schools and local communities, together with high-profile national events. We work with children and young people, their families, teachers and local authorities throughout the UK to create programmes which suit local needs.
As a Community Interest Company we are a not-for-profit organisation, working to benefit local communities. We are funded through strategic relationships with corporate partners to fulfil shared objectives, and with support from local benefactors, national grant-giving organisations, trusts and foundations.
"What a fabulous opportunity this project has been for our students, truly awe-inspiring. I wish I'd had the same opportunity when I was at school." Phill Bullas, Head of Music, Prince Henry's High School, Evesham
Sing UK knows that singing with others has a profound impact on people's lives. We provide opportunities for children and young people, and the communities in which they live, to sing together and therefore:
"I really enjoyed the amazing sound and feeling of everyone singing such powerful music together. The sound of our voices filling the cathedral will be something I will never ever forget." Melissa, student Pershore High School
