Hands and Voices
Our inclusive singing and signing choir, set up in 1997 to help adults with communication and learning difficulties communicate through music and performance. The Hands & Voices programme includes weekly rehearsals during term-time and a training programme where members learn leadership and communication skills. We also put on regular performances across the city and deliver outreach workshops co-led by our Hands & Voices trainees.
IMPs (Inclusive Music Projects)
Year-round fun, inclusive music activities for disabled and non-disabled children and young people. The IMPs programme includes after school clubs for under-11s, weekly sessions during term time for 11 - 25 year-olds, holiday activities, and a training programme where young people learn leadership and communication skills. We also deliver outreach workshops in schools, youth groups and other community settings, co-led by our IMPs trainees.
iMUSE provides a relaxing space you can explore creatively. It uses relaxation, sound, and visuals to help reduce stress and anxiety, improve your mood and enhance communication. iMUSE has proven to be of benefit to young people and adults with complex needs, older people and people with enduring mental ill-health.
