Re:Sound Reach Out

Creative Minds funding was used to match funding the group had received to develop and deliver the Re:Sound Reach Out programme. Building on the legacy of work and the aims of Re:Sound to reach more people and to make recovery more visible in Barnsley. This project evolved to provide platforms to facilitate this vision whilst also continuing to create and facilitate supportive, participant-led music-based activities.

This project also built in some work around developing the capacity of the group and supporting members of the group who were ready and keen to progress, lead sessions and shape ideas for the group and themselves moving forwards.

The Re:Sound Reach Out programme provided many different options for engagement, therapeutic release and meaningful and social activities using music and music-making.

This included:

• Weekly Re:Sound sessions (Fridays, 4-7pm), including D.I.Y Sessions. ‘Safe space for me to be me’. Music-making, devising, skills development, self-expression. Programme of sessions develops with the needs and aspirations of group members. The group supports adults with mental health and/or drug and alcohol issues. It’s also open to family members and carers

• Re:Sound Reach Out – on tour sessions (engagement and events)

Participants have shared how they feel more confident, hopeful for the future and connected to other people and their wider community. Participants have also acknowledged the positive impact of music-based activities on their mental and physiological wellbeing such as increased relaxation, reduced anxiety and presentation of negative symptoms and generally more ‘feel good’ feelings.
