some of the most disadvantaged young people across the 4

children and young people in rural isolation. This funding will

allows us to provide positive targeted provision for our young people such as organising a range of performing opportunities, targeted music projects and career support for young musicians across the region.

Musical Communities also includes specialist training for our local music leaders and teachers to better support young people dealing with a range of challenging circumstances in their life. Our partnership places knowledge sharing and sharing best practice at the heart of the programme. There are already signs of the partners influencing and challenging practice already in place. 

As a partnership we are incredibly passionate about offering young people the best possible opportunities for personal, social, educational and creative development.
