Details of the Charity:Share this
Music Relief Foundation was set up to relieve young people's suffering through music. Looking at the pain that many of the young people are experiencing such as teenage pregnancy, mental health, knife crime, domestic abuse etc
A company Limited by Guarentee, registered number: 09408878, based in Croydon, South East London will provide music and art workshops for young people aged 11 - 19 years, training and empowering them because we believe that every young person has a talent and purpose in life to achieve. When a young person is empowered, inspired and encouraged, he/she will go out and aspire to greatness and this is our ethos.
We continue to build relationships with the Metropolitan Police, MP's, councillors, local authorities, schools, community and voluntary groups in order to build a stronger community for the young people. Creating opportunities for them to easily access us and our ability to signpost them to other organisations as continue our support to them.
Through our continuous work with the young people, we pride ourselves in instilling a deep-rooted understanding of self-worth as they embark on their personal journeys. Thus building confidence and increasing self-esteem with added opportunities to gain accredited certifications.
