Sing to Beat COVID

Sing to Beat are looking for volunteer participants who live in Kent (and Medway) who are experiencing post-COVID symptoms to singing groups for people living with ‘Long COVID’. 

In the initial phase, Sing to Beat COVID groups will meet twice a week for a maximum of 45 minutes. You will also meet other people living with Long COVID. These groups will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants.

The sessions will take place at 12pm on Mondays and Fridays and will start on Friday April 9th. If you are interested in taking part, please email Project Manager This email address is being protected from spambots.

A short one-to-one telephone consultation with one of our two facilitators (photo and bio below) will be necessary before confirmation of a place in the group.

Prof. Grenville Hancox - Founder and Artistic Director

Dr. Trish Vella-Burrows - Associate Director of Research and Trainer

 

Sing to Beat has partnered with the NHS to deliver a programme of support for patients experiencing chronic post-COVID symptoms. Our friends at Music4Wellbeing will also be part of the delivery and evaluation and research will be conducted by the University of Derby.

Short, regular, singing sessions will be delivered online to patients, who will be signposted to the service by medical professionals across the four integrated care partnerships that make up the Kent area. The four regions are:

  • East Kent
  • West Kent
  • Medway and Swale
  • Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley

The symptoms of post-COVID typically include (but are not limited to):

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Breathlessness
  • Poor mental wellbeing

It is hoped that group singing may alleviate one or more of these symptoms and in addition, provide support for patient wellbeing
