Improving outcomes for children in challenging circumstances through music

Daisi’s Soundwaves project is making sure that musical opportunities are available and accessible to Devon and Torbay’s most in need young people.  Soundwaves, funded by Youth Music, is currently working with vulnerably housed young people, with care leavers, and with staff who support early years children in our most deprived areas.  Follow this link to find out more about Soundwaves and how to get involved.

“I had no confidence when I first came into the room but became more comfortable during the session as I was allowed to be creative and be myself.”
