Every year, Foster Care Associates, along with a couple of other independent fostering agencies, eagerly anticipates one special day that takes centre stage in our calendar – The Big Sing Off. It's more than just an event; it's a celebration of voices, unity, and unforgettable memories.

This event is more than just music; it's about fostering a sense of belonging. It's about creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. It's about the joy of singing together, learning together, and growing together.

What is The Big Sing Off?

Imagine a day filled with heartwarming melodies, harmonious voices, and sheer enthusiasm, where choirs are not just groups of singers but representations of our children, young people, foster carers, and staff. The Big Sing Off is all about creating unforgettable moments through the magic of music and song. It's like a fusion of the X Factor's excitement and the camaraderie of BBC's Last Choir Standing.

What makes this event even more special is that it's a dynamic celebration that evolves each year. Different teams from across the country come together, each adding their unique twist and theme to the event. It's a dynamic tapestry of creativity and talent that continues to astonish us year after year.

The heart of The Big Sing Off lies in its annual singing competition. It's the stage where our children and young people step into the spotlight, showcasing their incredible talents. For them, it's not just a performance; it's a chance to embrace new experiences and connect with foster children from all corners of the UK. The applause, the cheers, and the sense of accomplishment – it's all a part of this remarkable journey.

So, as we gear up for another year of The Big Sing Off, we're filled with excitement and anticipation. We can't wait to see what our talented teams will bring to the stage. The Big Sing Off isn't just a competition; it's a celebration of the beauty of fostering – of bringing voices together and creating a symphony of love and unity. Stay tuned for more updates and insights into this year's event.
