Spending on youth services has been cut by 70% in less than a decade
We have witnessed many local and national changes in our 22 years – much of it harmful for young people and budding musicians.

We're up for the challenge
AudioActive provide widely accessible projects that use music to support young people and emerging artists in reaching their potential.
Our work aims to use music for social innovation, develop grass roots talent, and create a fairer more inclusive industry and world of work.
We work with so many aspiring artists who despite being exceptionally talented, have been failed by the education system, often leaving school with no formal qualifications and little prospect for progression through formal talent development pathways.
