The Military Wives Choir network of charities

Catterick Military WAGS Choir, Chivenor, Military Ladies Choir, and the Military Wives Choirs are three independent charities. Each charity exists to provide support and shared experiences for women across the tri-service military community, including military wives, women who serve, mothers and daughters and those with a current military connection. Between them, the three organisations now support over 2,500 women within the military community to increase well-being through singing.
