Two of our young people are currently involved in a Nurture Psychology project which explores how music can promote resilience and well-being for cared for children and young people. This is a new collaboration between Nurture Psychology Service & North Manchester FM Community Radio station, funded by the National Lottery. The aim is to provide a programme of activities which help young people build resilience and explore thoughts and feelings such as, loss, hope, optimism, anger and stress using music, song writing and radio production. In total, fifteen cared for young people have been attending the sessions. Eight of which have involved them working with musician facilitators to create new songs. The remaining sessions have been on radio production sessions, which involve learning new skills around presenting and producing their own radio show. They will cover interview techniques, research, editing radio/audio production and together they will apply these skills during two final broadcasts on NMFM 106.6. We are glad to say that our young people have nearly completed the course and will be presenting how music helps to get them through challenges from 5pm on Wednesday 15th May 2019 on NM FM 106.6.
