Soft Touch's Spotlighting grant enabled us to develop a trial app to evidence and report on the music outcomes from our music mentoring and elevated risk projects.

A music project which is mixing up cultures, styles and genres, designed around collaborations of people and music, this project aims to work with young people from all walks of life. 

We are a Leicester-based charity established in 1986 which uses arts, media and music activities to inspire and engage young people and help them to develop creative, social and employability skills. Our inclusive way of working helps young people who lack opportunities or have challenges in their lives to participate in positive creative activities. We help them get back on track if things have gone wrong, try new things, build the confidence and resilience to change negative or risky behaviours, and progress to lead more fulfilling lives. This, in turn, has a beneficial effect on their communities.

 
 

Our Projects

Since 1986 we have delivered hundreds of creative projects with thousands of people across Leicestershire. We use the arts to engage young people that are struggling to reach their potential because of family problems, difficulties in mainstream education or other issues which are holding back their personal and social development. Our projects, run in partnership with local agencies and businesses, unlock untapped potential, hidden depths and talent and are highly engaging and effective in making young people feel part of something and improving their aspirations for the future. The process of creating builds self-belief and confidence and through involvement in group projects generates a sense of belonging and feeling valued.
