The New EnginEars is a young person led music making project which supports the creative, social, personal and emotional development of young carers aged 5-18 years in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Funded by Youth Music, and delivered in partnership with The Carers Hub, The New EnginEars delivered 18 months of high quality music-making opportunities to young carers during school holiday periods and monthly club meetings between 2016 and 2018, with decision making and project delivery informed by steering groups of young carers themselves, offering the forum to develop leadership potential and an equal share in the decision making process.
