Supporting small groups by demonstrating the difference they make

We linked with Wall Heath Ladies Choir to build a picture of potential members, promote the choir, help them to secure a venue and set up as a constituted group. We supported them to access more than £3,000 to help kick start the choir by demonstrating the difference that this small group makes to the lives of its members, including improving their health and wellbeing and keeping people connected in their community.

In the latter part of last year Becky, Small Groups Officer at Dudley CVS, met with Lorraine, who wanted to set up a ladies choir in Wall Heath. Lorraine and her colleagues took on all the support offered, working hard to identify people who wanted to join the choir, finding a friendly venue and linking with others.

Highlights of our work with this group include:

  • Linking with community groups in Wall Heath to build a picture of potential members, promote the choir and secure a venue
  • Setting up as a constituted group
  • Accessing more than £3,000 to help kick start the choir
  • Demonstrating the difference that this small group makes to the lives of its members, including improving their health and wellbeing and keeping people connected in their community.
