Yorkshire Youth & Music is a community music education company working across the whole of Yorkshire. Established in 1989, we have more than 25 years of organisational experience in delivering fantastic, music-based projects to young people across the region.
We have expertise and a reputation for reaching the hardest to reach young people, and those in very challenging circumstances, working in partnership with schools, music services, community groups and other organisations and institutions who provide support and services to young people.
We work with children with SEND (including those with severe and complex needs), with Looked After Children, with Young Carers, with young people in secure and controlled environments, as well as recent migrants, Roma or travellers, and young people who live with the effects of poverty.
We follow young people’s own musical aspirations and needs and we employ the very best, multi-skilled and expert music practitioners on our projects. We also offer a wide range of training and support to adults who work with children and young people.
