Support the work of our charity

Our charitable mission is to produce, promote and create opportunities for children and young people to improve their mental health and wellbeing through singing.

With 50% of mental health problems established by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 24, we believe it's critical to focus on prevention by working with young people.

Our work covers practical resources, courses and development opportunities for:

•    Leaders and practitioners 
•    Schools and teachers
•    Organisations and managers
•    Parents and families

Help us create a healthier world through song

And it was clear that the answer was through the music, feeling safe in that space and then being able to express through that.
