Our Y-Talent music & arts project is currently funded by Postcode Lottery and the Arts Council of Wales to support over 120 children and young people between the ages of 5 and 25 every year. We use anything to do with music as an engagement tool to support young people who have experienced trauma, neglect, substance use, have been involved in criminal activity, are vulnerable or are struggling with their identity and self-esteem. The project focus is to get children and young people to try new things, feel better about themselves, meet others and build confidence.

The workshops or one-to-ones are tailored to individual needs. We are able to offer tuition in learning to play the guitar, piano, drums, singing, song-writing as well as teach young people how to run a professional recording studio. Music really is an amazing way to get young people to express themselves and get them involved in positive activities.
