Young people in the care system (including fostered and adopted), living in East Staffordshire, are being invited to take part in ‘Positive Sounds’, an exciting new project led by local music charity Make Some Noise.

Make Some Noise would love to hear from carers, families and agencies keen to refer young people to take part in ‘Positive Sounds’ which is funded with thanks to Children in Need.  The project involves a series of fun sessions delivered by Make Some Noise professional musicians who will use music as a vehicle for participants to express themselves in a positive way, share their experiences and opinions to help improve not only their own well-being and learning but that of their peers.

Weekly sessions are taking place now on Wednesdays from 5.30pm – 7.30pm until 26 October 2016 at Darwin Hall, Heathcot Place in Lichfield WS13 6RQ.

John Simmonds, Programme Development Officer for Make Some Noise said:

“Looked after Children are disadvantaged by a multitude of factors and experience poorer outcomes than others in their age group; we are pleased to be working with more groups within our area.  We not only would like to hear from any groups in East Staffordshire to become involved with Positive Sounds but also from any Staffordshire Moorlands based organisations supporting young people in the care system (including fostered and adopted) for a future project aimed at providing further opportunities for looked after children. So please, do get in touch if you would like to be involved!”
