Families of service personnel move around frequently and it can often be tough to put down roots or make new friends, particularly when loved ones are away for long periods of time.

Research shows that singing in a choir helps to alleviate stress and contributes to an improvement in isolation, anxiety and depression. The Military Wives Choirs therefore have a vital role to play by bringing women in the military community together to sing.

As a registered charity, the Military Wives Choirs is now made up of a network of 75 choirs and more than 2300 members based across the UK and in British military bases abroad, including Cyprus, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Choirs are tri-service and not just open to wives of serving personnel – anyone with a military connection can join, empowering women from across the military community.

Every new posting for women in the military community is as daunting as it is exciting, but knowing that you have a choir to go to in your new location where you know the songs and even some of the people can be a real lifeline. That’s why, whilst each local choir has its own identity, all are run in a very similar way with shared music, a fun and friendly ethos and lots of ‘cross-network’ projects and activities.

The Military Wives Choirs is an independent charity and subsidiary of SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. As part of the SSAFA family, the Military Wives Choirs work side by side SSAFA’s mission to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity as a charity run by, for and with women in the military community.

By supporting the Military Wives Choirs, you are helping women in the military community to sing, share and support one another and feel stronger together.

We bring women in the military community closer together through singing.

Our members help one another through the bad times, celebrate the good times and all of us sing our way through it together.

We welcome women, from serving personnel’s partners to veterans’ wives, from those who work in their local military community to those who serve in the military.

Wherever we are in the world, the choirs give each of us a chance to make a difference where we live.

Our output is in three areas.

Experience – Firstly, in the provision of days out, privileged access to big events and in a first hand, front seat, white knuckle introduction to an exciting and engaging sport.
Competition – The preparation, development, coaching and teamwork involved in competition is a hugely cathartic experience. By engaging in sprints, hill climbs, track racing, and rallying we engender a real team ethos. It is about much more than just the driving – car and boat preparation, logistics, support and race management all present challenges to be overcome. This can greatly help in the rebuilding of an individual’s confidence and provides emotional as well as practical support, and we are chock full of examples of where that is exactly the case – where participation in motorsport is changing lives for the better.
Vocation – Mission Motorsport provides a range of training courses and educational opportunities to suit the needs of individuals. These range from one day basic car maintenance courses at our workshop near Tedworth House; to a Modular Motorsport Foundation course culminating in a residential placement working with a major race team
