We make a difference, by providing a variety of music based projects that, first and foremost, respond to the needs of children and young people in very challenging circumstances

Our core aim is to remove the barriers in place for these young people to access good quality music making opportunities, which in turn can (and has been proven to) improve their life chances, long term.

We work in partnership with a number of organisations operating across the county, including:

  • 15 local Music Hub lead organisations in Yorkshire (mostly music services)
  • Local councils
  • 2 secure homes
  • 2 local CAMHS services
  • Various local arts and music organisations

How we can support you

If you or your organisation works with children with significant and challenging needs, we have the expertise to provide you with the tools and skills to improve the lives and experiences of these young people, through music.

We design carefully crafted projects that start with the needs of and ambitions for these young people and work with a range of professional musicians and facilitators to achieve significant and lasting change in their lives.

Please feel free to contact our team to tell us more about yourself and how we might support the work you do.
