Alongside providing housing, benefit, careers and education advice, mental health support plus access to an onsite nurse and counsellor and basic needs such as laundry, showers and a hot lunch, the centre also provides music sessions to help give their young people a much needed voice.
These sessions not only help improve communication skills, self esteem and self confidence for these vulnerable and marginalised young people, but also offer an opportunity to achieve AQA academic qualifications.
We are thrilled to have been able to provide New Horizon with funds to give their music studio a much needed refurb, helping more disadvantaged young people achieve positive outcomes.
We were thrilled to work with brilliant music initiative Drum Works on their new project in Lewisham providing unaccompanied minors (young people who have arrived in the UK without family) & looked after young people in the borough with group drumming sessions, helping improve communication, social and peer leadership skills & mental wellbeing, profoundly affects the lives of the young people it works with.
