Singing Jo and Co receive funding boost to support all generations

Sat, 20 May 2023

Local charity Singing Jo and Co has received a grant of £32,750 from Manx Lottery Trust to allow it to extend its sessions and support even more families.

The funding will give the Charity an opportunity to offer sessions to more children, and also provide friendly support for parents and carers to help develop relationships, make new friends and to give parents confidence in supporting their young learners. Also provided during the sessions, will be fun learning activities to do at home to support the themes, and continue development.

Established in 2018, the charity offers a unique programme bringing communities together and providing important early learning opportunities and musical fun for newborns up to 5 year olds supported by parents, grandparents, great-grandparents or carers. The free of charge musical sessions are structured around developing vocabulary, language, communication and social skills, simple counting, and fitness which help build self-confidence and self-esteem in children.

The Charity is particularly mindful of the impact following Covid 19, and want to ensure the sessions address the effects on social interaction and language development skills, particularly in babies and toddlers.
