£3,000 raised for the Singing for Health Network
Last week, on Friday 18th February we were honoured to have the opportunity to platform a conference, organised and presented by the Singing for Health Network, titled ‘Insights and Innovations’.
The event was run in association with the Voice Study Centre, The Royal College of Music, University College London, University of Limerick, York St John University and The Singing for Health Network.
We are thrilled that £3,000 was raised for the network!
The conference featured 10 presentations from researchers in relative fields.
3 of the presentations were from Voice Study Centre students;
Ruth Routledge – Can singing be used to treat high blood pressure? A pilot study into singing, blood pressure and wellbeing
Claire Turner – An investigation of Compassion Focused Therapy as a potential theoretical underpinning for a model of one-to-one singing approaches to support mental health
Lisa Strong – An exploration of how occupational therapy could support inclusion within community choirs.
We’d like to wish a huge thank you to all of the presenters and of course, to everyone who attended!
