STB Covid Groups

Are you living with Long Covid?

If so, we are looking for volunteers to join an online Singing Group for people living with Long Covid.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a cross-national three week pilot project between the UK and Ireland - the UK based organisation, Sing to Beat, and Professor Grenville Hancox, have teamed up with Irish-based singing facilitator, Dara MacMahon, and they will jointly facilitate the singing sessions.

Twelve participants (six from the UK and six from Ireland) will meet twice a week online for a maximum of 45 minutes each session.

Sessions will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 midday, from Tuesday 9 November to Thursday 25 November 2021.

If you are interested in taking part, please email Matt Shipton Project Manager (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Please include a contact telephone number in your email. A short one-to-one telephone consultation with one of our team will be necessary before confirmation of a place in the group.

Prof. Grenville Hancox - Founder and Artistic Director

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 supportĀ for patient wellbeing
