Arts for Cancer Cornwall have created two toolkits to provide ideas, advice and inspiration to help care staff to begin singing and dancing sessions in their care settings.

The toolkits were developed from projects that have taken place in care settings across Cornwall, pulling together the experiences and knowledge of care staff and practitioners.

Both contain inspirational films on DVD which promote the benefits singing and dancing as well as incorporating specific staff training and development information, which focuses on engaging elderly clients.

The toolkits aim not only to promote activities in general but to provide a training resource that supports staff and carers in organising and running singing sessions, which are sustainable, affordable and fun.
