At Singing Jo & Co we are committed to working as a team. We have two official members who help and support decision making around all aspects of the Charity. Board meetings are held to discuss all fundraising matters, finances and sponsors. Jo delivers all sessions along with the support of her team. As Head of the Charity, Jo is responsible for planning all the sessions where we use songs and rhymes as a resource to support and fulfil the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Jo is also responsible the general day to day running of the Charity, sourcing sponsors, updating the Charity Plan and ensuring all policies, financial matters and any legal matters pertaining to the Charity are kept up to date.

Each of our sessions are run by two experienced team members and we all have children of varying ages and endeavour to share our parenting experiences! Working in partnership with the community and Isle of Man Safeguarding Board, Singing Jo & Co aims to make sure that children using all sessions are protected and listened to. All staff are trained in safeguarding up to Level 4. Our safeguarding policy can be found by clicking here.
