News and Blogs News Project Return set to orchestrate change with Care-Experienced Choir Project Return is launching a Choir, which will utilise music and relationships as a supportive resource to overcome trauma. Our aim is to bring together those with experience of the children’s care and/or the justice system and the care workforce, giving them a voice and way of connecting through music.Why are we launching a Choir? Within our care community there is an enormous amount of talent and love for music and we want to create a space and time where everyone can come together, with no labels and celebrate this.Singing as part of a group has been shown as a way of improving your well-being, mental health, empowerment and building great friendships. It also allows us to grow through uncovering different things about ourselves and understanding our own social identity. Our choir will harness this. “Music is the strongest form of magic.” ― Marilyn Manson When will Choir take place?
