Together, we can change the world… one voice at a time.
Loneliness is the global epidemic of our times. More than 2 in 5 people feel socially isolated and unheard. It impacts every single person and leads to mental and physical health issues and economic disadvantage. Its impact is even greater for people already experiencing disadvantage.

“I had bad anxiety, mainly from not working since my retirement, which could have become depression if I had not found Greater Dandenong Sings. Singing has helped as it makes me happy, it’s uplifting, but also talking to people who had similar problems. The choir is supportive. We sing happy songs that give a sense of positive good feeling. I always look forward to choir. I think I will be singing there until I can’t anymore. My wife noticed the difference in me. I’m back to me normal self now.” Julian (With One Voice Greater Dandenong)
“The very big reason why I have joined the Melbourne choir was to belong, and to be needed. I have been depressed for some time now, as I have not seen my daughter, or my two beautiful grandchildren Erin and Emma for the last 15 months, and I have been feeling very empty, lonely, and Lost. Most of my days I am crying. I know then I was going through depression. I had been going to see a Psychologist. The talks we had were good, But I was still going home crying. My son Paul had said to me, Mum you need something different in your life. He suggested music, as music is good for the soul. Paul went on to the internet, touch on to Google and found Melbourne choir at the Sofitel. Paul came with me for a few months until I got used to going on my own. Tuesday is choir night, and I love looking forward to it. Singing makes me Happy. I have met so many nice people in the choir.” Sarah (With One Voice Melbourne)
