At Soundabout we believe that adults and children with learning disabilites should have an interative musical life that enhances their lives and education.
"How can you place a value on what Soundabout offers? It allows children with no other way of expressins themselves a voice. They are among equals - all can join in. Families get a break and a good afternoon out. Rare if not impossible to find something we can all enjoy together."
We are a national charity which has pioneered the use of music, rhythm and soud to give disabled children and adults a voice, a way to express themselves and be listened to.
We offer children, young people and adults, with their families and carers, regular community sessions which encourage absolutely everyone to take part in their own way in a relaxed and friendly environment. All of our sessions are lead and developed by our highly skilled and experienced music practitioners.
We also provide resources for parents of children with profound and multiple disabilities to help them create their own Soundabout sessions at home.
During lock down we have moved a number of our projects online, including Little Soundabout sessions for children aged 0-5, bi-weekly interactive Soundabout Live sessions and our daily Hello Songs.
