The Songwriting Charity

Songwriting charity

Dedicated to the empowerment of youth through the art and craft of songwriting, the work of the charity addresses the emotional health and wellbeing of children of all abilities.

Offering unique one-day workshops and wider performance programmes that seek to address the core themes of GHLL, the charity provides children with opportunities to sing, write lyrics, perform and record their ideas both individually and as a team - evaluating their progress and actively supporting the progress of their friends every step of the way.

Recorded material is then available free for children to download and schools can use the songs for presentations, assemblies, special events or for use out in the wider community.

Our paper based impact measures align with GHLL’s reporting tool, and therefore, our work with you can count as an intervention towards your GHLL award.

Over the years we have found that joining up our efforts with local and regional initiatives, ensuring our work is relevant for the children who are creating the songs is the best way to make a lasting impression and improve the overall wellbeing of the children we work with.

This autumn, to run alongside our hugely successful and impactive "Bully Beat" programme, we are launching the "Something Kind" programme.

Something Kind encourages acts of kindness through songwriting - giving "Kindness" the reputation it deserves. 

Underpinned by a focus on emotional health & wellbeing, the programme seeks to raise confidence levels in those involved and engender strong relationships at secondary level whilst bolstering resilience through transition to secondary school for our primary school participants. We will be working with schools in the most rural communities in Gloucestershire with a range of disadvantage based on numbers of disabled, impoverished and geographically isolated children, ensuring those with least access to the arts are given new opportunities to participate.

As always, the Something Kind workshops will leave the wonderful legacy of an original song for the school and the lasting effect of children reaching out to each other to offer kindness.

The programme is generously supported by The Summerfield Charitable trust and Gloucestershire Healthy Living & Learning.
