Positive Sounds is a programme for Looked After Children aged 8 – 18 years across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

We run 2 weekly music clubs in the evening exclusively for Looked After Children, their siblings and their carers, in Lichfield and Stoke.

This project aims to give the children and young people who participate the opportunity to socialise in an empowering and inclusive environment, accommodating the range of complex needs presented.

We use highly trained and experienced inspirational community musicians to use music as a tool to enable the participants have their voices heard, help improve their confidence and develop their communication skills.

“Out of everything we do in the week, this is by far one of the best things we come to for these children’s personal development.” Carer of the participants at the music club.

This programme has been made possible thanks to funding from BBC Children in Need, Garfield Weston Foundation and the National Foundation for Youth Music.
