Join the choir for carers! The World Harmony Orchestra (WHO) was founded to bring the gift of music to people who might not normally be able to access its wellbeing benefits. Group singing can be a valuable tool, helping to build confidence and self-esteem, developing compassion and empathy, stimulating communication skills, minimizing anxiety and providing an opportunity to connect with others – even virtually.

Carers have been found to be more vulnerable to a range of health and social problems than the general population.
Research points to social isolation, poor general health, depression, anxiety, fatigue, long term stress and low confidence.
Hackney Carers Centre offers support towards better outcomes for carers in Hackney through wellbeing activities, learning opportunities, counselling, life coaching and an advice service.
