KiB and COVID-19

Older people feel more alone and isolated than ever before now that care homes and most hospitals have cancelled visits. The crisis hasn’t stopped KiB: our singers are spreading cheer at a safe distance – on doorsteps, through windows, and in the streets.

Kissing it Better

KiB courses – the official launch party

November 2019

Guests from big business, education and healthcare gathered to toast our unique brand of teaching – which shows how to meet the challenges of old age with imagination, creativity and kindness.

The beauty of KiB courses is that they’re perfectly designed for a range of different learners: they offer CPD for healthcare staff; enrichment for school and college students; and unique insight into the real world for apprentices and graduates. They’re also perfect for companies who want to improve their corporate responsibility profile.

Our teaching and training courses were all developed in partnership with Skills for Health, and are accredited and regulated by SFJ awards. They are rigorous, but fun. Philosophically thought provoking, yet also packed with common sense.

“I’m so proud of our teaching and training,” says KiB’s Jill Fraser. “This is the next step for us – the perfect way to make our expertise available to everyone.”
