The success of the group has seen a large population of Nepalese families join and families have requested a second session to run during the week. Stafford Barracks has undergone a significant change in personnel and seen an increase of Nepalese families to the site. With no Nepalese Welfare officer on site, families being supported have language as a barrier to engagement.

Our previous Upbeat Families sessions have enabled these families to be engaged, music and songs breaking down barriers to engagement where other services have struggled.

The sessions are free, funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund and ABF Soldiers Charity.

They take place at The Dixon Centre, The HIVE, Tedder Road, off Beaconside, Stafford on Tuesday mornings 10.00am – 11.00am and Tuesday afternoons 12.30pm – 1.30pm

As part of the weekly sessions run by Make Some Noise, the team has produced a set of short films for families to enjoy Upbeat fun within the home.

Enjoy each song with your child and follow the actions for the full Upbeat fun time!
