We were asked by HMYOI Rochester to set up a choir for their adult prisoners and young offenders in November 2018.This involves weekly sessions and the opportunity to continue working with people on release. This may include referrals to local partner agencies and community music groups to aid resettlement and reduce the risk of re-offending through mentoring support and musical activity.
