On Thursday 19th October, we ran our first major Musical Inclusion SEN/D Conference scheduled as part of our current Youth Music Fund B project, “Music Forge”. The conference was designed to showcase the full range of our musical inclusion activities along with SEN/D projects being delivered by some of our Hub Delivery Partners. The target audience consisted of school teachers and music/arts specialists working within special schools and DSP units across Northamptonshire and Rutland (NB: NMPAT is the lead organisation for both the Northamptonshire and Rutland Music Education Hubs). 

FAB! is an annual action-packed day for Looked After Children in Lincolnshire ran by soundLINCS, as part of our FundC Fusion programme. 

For the past five years it has combined a presentation ceremony for children and young people from all over Lincolnshire with a huge diversity of music and arts activities based around a chosen theme. There was also a long service Award Ceremony for Foster Carers as well as a Foster Carers Conference giving them the opportunity to learn and liaise with other carers.
