~Unfortunately in today’s modern climate young people are given a hard time. They may be looked down on because of how they look, their lifestyle and the people they associate with. But this doesn’t therefore mean they’re doomed with no future and no prospects beyond the High School gates.

Creativity Works Preston is a registered charity that was established to meet the needs of NEETS. The charity provides a supportive and nurturing environment for young people to continue education and acquire the skills needed for secure, sustained and gainful employment.

CWP has been recognised as a positive organisation that encourages change and greater development for young adults. Due to this recognition is has been awarded funding from national charity, Youth Music to provide music making activities for young people.

Located in Shepherd Street, Preston,  is has been granted a total of £80,527 over two years for an exciting new project, ‘The Big Little Project.’ They will deliver on their promise to bring music based activities which will include performance and production.

100 people or more  will be encouraged to get involved with ages ranging from 10 - 25. These participants will have the chance to achieve nationally recognised music related qualifications.

Interested ones should note that a trip abroad will also be included which will see the young ones enjoying Poland.

The much needed funds will be used to improve CWP’S music facilities. The money will go into creating a new and improved recording studio and mac production suite. This will allow the organisation to cut down in spending in schools which will keep costs down.

Deputy Chief Executive of CWP, Anita McGreevy, expresses these words of joy in response to the financial reward from Youth Music,

“We are thrilled to have received the continued support from Youth Music in what is now our third grant, a testimony to the strong working relationship we have built up with Youth Music over the past five years.”

Creativity Works Preston are now able to provide free places to young people not in education, employment or training (NEETS) post-16 beneficiaries due to the match funding from the European Social Fund (ESF).
