Soundabout has been selected as a Global’s Make Some Noise charity

 

We’re delighted to announce that Soundabout have been selected as a Global’s Make Some Noise charity. 

 
Global’s Make Some Noise funds and empowers small charities like us, helping disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK.
 
Global’s Make Some Noise is supported by the media and entertainment group, Global, home to some of the UK’s biggest radio brands including Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold. They come together to raise money and awareness for small charities like Soundabout and provide training to boost skills and build sustainability. 
 
For Soundabout, Global’s Make Some Noise is supporting our new Building Bridges project which will provide support to children and young people with profound learning disabilities, and their families, through music, during two critical life phases: early years (aged 0-5) and early adulthood (aged 19-25)
Clare Cook, CEO of Soundabout said, “Our recent three-year project and research report Sounds of Intent in the Early Years revealed the significant impact that meaningful music provision makes in closing the gap for young children with profound and multiple learning disabilities. We are hugely grateful to Globals Make Some Noise and excited to be working with them to help make our new project “Building Bridges" a reality on the back of this powerful evidence that every child in UK should have the right to access music, both for its own sake, and to support their wider development. Building Bridges focuses on times of particular challenge for children with complex needs and their families - from the moment shortly after birth when diagnosis hits, through the transition out of school when these young people reach 19."

On Friday 11th October we’ll be taking part in Global’s Make Some Noise Day. All of Global’s radio brands and people up and down the country will be doing something to shout about, big and small, to raise money for Make Some Noise.
