Risk management and planning resources

We've put together three documents to help you and your choir with your planning and risk assessments for returning to singing in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. These detailed documents have been updated to take account of the government guidelines and science before the latest lockdown, so are suitable for planning ahead as and when amateur activity is allowed.

Whilst document 1 is mainly aimed at guidelines for England, much of it is still relevant to choirs in the Devolved Nations, and all are relevant and recommended for everyone planning to return to singing.

All three are designed to be read in conjunction with each other:

  1. Practical considerations for choirs and conductors (updated December 2020)
  2. Guidance on Risk Assessment (updated December 2020)
  3. Risk Assessment templates

More advice

You can also find useful advice for choirs on making plans to return to singing on the Making Music website and on the ISM's website, both of which include advice for choirs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
