Every Youth Music project measures its impact, helping us build a unique national overview.
Our projects help young people to develop musically, of course, but they also have personal and social outcomes too. We support young people to build their confidence, resilience, and self-esteem. To meet different kinds of people, learn to trust each other, and make friends. To develop vital skills they need, get support to be able to face the world, and take control of their own lives.
Music-making and healthcare
Getting the chance to take part in music-making while in hospital or another healthcare setting has been shown to benefit children and young people in a number of ways.
Music-making and coldspots
Many children and young people face barriers to accessing music-making opportunities as a direct result of where or who they are. We’re determined to change this.
Music-making and youth justice
Children and young people in the youth justice system often face a complex variety of issues in their lives. Providing more music-making opportunities for these young people is one of our top priorities.
