My Pockets Music is a song writing project that uses music and creativity to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people.
Over the past 5 years we have worked with young refugees, young people who have been bereaved of a parent, teenagers facing homelessness, LGBT youth groups and young people from economically disadvantaged areas.
Groups can begin having no musical experience at all, they work with our team to play together, write songs and lyrics, shoot a video and then perform their songs live for the others taking part and their friends and families at an always chaotic and brilliant live event.

The project is funded by Spirit of 2021 and Youth Music. Our partners include Mind, Headstart, Hull City Council and East Riding Council.
