The Kirkwood

The Kirkwood provide specialist care, free of charge, to anyone affected by a life-limiting condition, at any time from diagnosis to the end of life, respecting their individual needs and wishes. Care and support is also provided for their family members, friends and carers, both during the illness and after death. We support people affected with lots of different conditions including dementia,chronic lung conditions, heart failure and cancer to name but a few. We offer many services in the community to do this , one of which is The Kirkwood Chorus.

The Kirkwood Chorus, delivered in partnership with music therapy charity Nordoff and Robbins, is a light-hearted singing group that aims to make you smile. It offers an opportunity for people to benefit from  all the wellbeing effects that singing offers as well as helping dispel many of the myths associated with hospice care. It’s all about bringing people together for an afternoon of fun in a welcoming environment and allowing them to focus on what matters to them. 

The idea of releasing a cover version of the song " It Must Be Love"  became a reality when the singer- songwriter, Labi Siffre, gave permission to the group to record their version of his beautiful love song. The ultimate hope for this song , is that it will help share the message that The Kirkwood supports people to live well from the beginning and not just at the end.
