Our 2020 Annual Report also looks ahead, envisioning how we will support recovery and rehabilitation in the wake of Covid-19.
Going forward, we will build on what we’ve learnt in 2020 and respond to the new operating environment that we and our participants find ourselves in. Here are a just a few ways in which we will develop our work this year:
  • We’ll launch new post-release hubs in Birmingham, Plymouth and South Wales
  • We'll be delivering trauma-informed music work to support prisoner’s mental health
  • We’ll be supporting the development of employment skills, through vocational music training
  • We’ll launch Red Tangent Records, which will support talented musicians who have  been in prison, helping them to build sustainable careers in a changing and challenging music industry
  • We’ll develop our music learning work with young people in the criminal justice system, nurturing and celebrating Young Voices
  • We’ll pursue our commitment to becoming an anti-racist organisation, building a culture of diversity and inclusion at Changing Tunes, which will also be reflected in the diversity of our musical offer

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout these challenging times.
