St Helens Music Network
The group work across St. Helens as an infrastructure organisation to bring together the community and promote music across the borough. St. Helens Music Network CIC promote the value of music as an aid to health and wellbeing for individuals and the communities.
The group was funded to run a series of music workshops called youplay targeting men experiencing mental health issues. The sessions supported the individuals positively developing their music skills and taking them on a journey form composition to recording a completed track.
St. Helens Music Network CIC have taken the monitoring and evaluation from the youplay workshops along with a previous pilot and are working to secure long term funding to allow sessions to be run on a consistent weekly basis.
