Yorkshire Youth & Music is a community music and arts education company working across the whole of Yorkshire

We create music-making opportunities that change the lives of children and young people in very challenging circumstances across the region, including:

  • children with special education needs
  • young people in Youth Justice settings
  • children with disabilities

We have expertise and a reputation for reaching the hardest to reach young people, and those in very challenging circumstances, working in partnership with schools, music services, community groups and other organisations and institutions who provide support and services to young people. You can find out more about the projects we run and the difference we make to young people's lives here.

Our work has been funded by Youth Music, the Arts Council, Children in Need, a variety of local Trusts and Foundations and by kind donations from individuals.

YY&M follows young people’s own musical aspirations and we employ the very best, multi-skilled music practitioners on our projects. We also offer training and support to adults who work with children and young people in a variety of settings and circumstances.
