The Irene Taylor Trust is a company limited by guarantee and charity (no. 1073105) which specialises in delivering creative music projects for prisoners, ex-prisoners and NEET young people, through the programmes 'Music in Prisons', 'Sounding Out' and 'Making Tracks'.
We believe that creating original music collaboratively can make a powerful impact on people's lives, breaking down barriers and helping people who have found themselves pushed to the fringes of society to become celebrated and valued members of the community.
Our projects are about more than simply creating music. The creative process is also a vehicle for substantial personal development and can act as the catalyst in helping participants to make positive changes in their lives. See our website (www.irenetaylortrust.com) for details of academic evaluation of our impact and participants‚Äô experiences of taking part in their own words.
