Livewire Youth Project

“Making Music, Changing Lives”

Registered UK charity: number 300632.
Livewire is an independent long-standing youth charity based on the banks of the River Tamar in Saltash, Cornwall, offering support to young people through music and traditional youth work, helping steer them through the trials and tribulations of growing up.

Our work includes aiding with difficult situations such as self harm, low self esteem, eating disorders, family and personal relationship issues, sexual health and drug and alcohol issues. We rely on the generosity of our supporters, fundraising and grants to help us continue delivering this valuable support.

Livewire focuses on support for young people aged 10 to 21 offering a full range of quality facilities and activities, including music lessons, guitar, bass, drums and vocals, rehearsal and recording studios and a 250 capacity live music venue, plus coffee bar area with pool and games tables among other socially engaging activities.


Started in the 1940s as the Saltash Boys Club,  Livewire is now known locally as Livewire Youth Music Project – “Making Music, Changing Lives” – because we recognise the power of music to transform and build confidence.


We’d love your donation to keep Livewire Rocking!
