Be part of the biggest signing event in the world and take on sign2sing!
Between Monday 8th February and Sunday 14th of February 2021 thousands of children across the UK will perform one or more songs in British Sign Language from our back album showcasing the most popular songs over the years.
sign2sing is a wonderful opportunity for your school to do something new and educational- learning to sign while also fundraising for the Deaf health charity SignHealth.
Register your schools details now and go to the album to get practising with all you need to get started! There are directions to all you need to help your whole school learn how to sign.
Taking part is sign2sing is easy, just follow these helpful steps:
|Register - it's simple and takes just a couple of minutes|
|Practise the song using our tutorials|
|Plan and promote a sign2sing performance event|
|Donate a minimum of £1 per person to take part and encourage others to support your fundraiser for SignHealth|
|Perform the song|
|Pay in your hard earned money|
We recommend having 2-3 practice sessions ahead of your sign2sing performance to help your pupils learn the signs. You can also find a letter to Carers/Parents in our resources section and encourage all the family to practice at home too.

We also recognise the challenge of collecting participants contributions during lockdown. One solution would be to set up your own JustGiving page where donations can be made online.
Here is the SignHealth JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/signhealth
Click the orange tab at the top where it says 'Fundraise for us' and then you can add your own words to it such as why you have chosen our charity and what the activity is. You can then share this page with the children's parents and family, or put this onto your own school website to encourage donations.
We have chosen the most popular songs over the last ten years for you to choose from.
When you register you will be able to go to the back album to select which song(s) to choose from. You will see the following:
- sign2sing full music video
- sign2sing step by step tutorial
- sign2sing full video tutorial
- song lyrics
Be sure to share videos of your performances or practice sessions with us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Below are all the resources you need to help make your fundraising a success.
SignHealth is the Deaf health charity, working to improve the health and wellbeing of Deaf people.
Deaf people in the UK experience poorer health outcomes, often due to communication barriers that make even basic questions, tests and appointments difficult to access.
SignHealth offers accessible services delivered in sign language and campaigns for equitable access to healthcare, mental health and social care services.
