“Coming to the choir makes me feel very happy and relaxed.

Since I joined I’ve noticed lots of changes. For example, I feel physically fit, healthier and less stressed.

This is because it is all about singing and laughing, loving and supporting one another. After the Joyous choir activities, I go home calmly and have a sound and better sleep. I have developed stronger connections with others through the Joyous Choir.

We start by finding out more about each other and who we are. This involves being listened to, sharing our problems and views, and also respecting and understanding one another.

After we perform together I feel so great!”

Maryhill Integration Network is a registered charity (SC037300),

our aim is to create positive social change by providing a welcoming space and opportunities for connection and collaboration across communities.

Our work depends on the support of people like you who share our belief that refugees should be welcomed into society and shown respect and kindness from the moment they arrive.

Donors help us to continue to provide the essential work we deliver which enables healing from trauma and supports people to thrive in our community.

Show your support in resisting the hostile environment and be part of our local movement of solidarity demonstrating that Glasgow welcomes refugees.
