Care providers across the country will today take part in an international video celebrating the sector with festive songs and celebration.
The hour-long Big Christmas Care Singalong, featuring care providers across the UK and Ireland, will be broadcast in care homes, hospitals, hospices, and people’s own homes to celebrate all those who live and work in social care.
Last year’s event was watched by thousands of people who live and work in the social care sector, with viewers coming from the UK and further afield in Australia, New Zealand and Venezuela.
Even leader, Big Ian Donaghy, said: “We were determined to recreate the magic of last year’s online concert after seeing the beautiful response it generated. The video was more than an online concert: it was an opportunity for people across the entire sector to come together and share their personal memories and love of Christmas.
“I’m incredibly excited for the release of this year’s video, which promises to once again galvanise all those who live and work in social care. Expect the unexpected. You will laugh, and you may cry, as people share their stories.”
Big Ian, a well-known and outspoken advocate for the social care sector who has published numerous books on kindness and dementia, has produced this year’s event in partnership with everyLIFE Technologies, provider of PASS, a care management platform for all care settings.
Duncan Campbell, Director at everyLIFE Technologies, provider of PASS, the care management platform, said: “The Big Christmas Care Singalong is quickly becoming a Christmas staple for the social care sector. Its unique ability to bring people together, particularly in the wake of COVID-19, is a quality everyLIFE Technologies admires and fully supports. We’re proud to have partnered with Big Ian to create this year’s concert and look forward to seeing its positive impact across all care settings up and down the country.”
