“Making Music, Changing Lives”
What is Livewire?
Livewire Youth Project is a registered charity (Registered Number 300632) and has been situated on the banks of the River Tamar in Saltash since the 1940s. More recently known locally as Livewire Youth Music Project – “Making Music, Changing Lives” - because we recognise the power of music to transform and build confidence, which is at the heart of our work.
Livewire focuses itself as a youth music project for young people aged 13 to 21 offering a full range of quality facilities and activities, including music lessons, guitar, bass, drums and vocals, rehearsal studio’s, recording studio’s and a 250 capacity live music venue.
Livewire offers a wide range of support to young people not only in terms of music but also supporting them through difficult situations including self harm, low self esteem, eating disorders, family and personal relationship issues, sexual health and drug and alcohol issues.
Due to budget cuts, we are sadly losing staffing support for two evening sessions from April 2014, so would love to hear from potential volunteers. Find out more by reading our blog post. [7th March 2014]
