SoundLINCS working with patients at Lincolnshire County Hospital

SoundLINCS’ Youth Music FundC programme is taking place throughout the region over the next three years. The project delivers a range of workshops and residential training programmes for youth justice services, paediatric services, young parents and children with special educational needs, including those who are hearing impaired. 

A variety of projects will take place, including developmental music making projects, support for structural change within music education, workforce development and research partnerships.

Siren FM spoke to SoundLINCS and Cassandre Balosso-Bardin,  a music lecturer at the University of Lincoln, about how this work effects the community and the individuals.
