Supporting young people through music and creativity

Welcome to Livewire Youth Project!

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.

Making music

We’re Livewire Youth Music, the charity that’s all about using contemporary music to unlock creativity and provide support to young people. Support young people across Cornwall, Devon and our local area.

Changing lives

Our aim is to change young lives, using FREE music lessons and music technology as a catalyst for all young people with an interest in music. Come along and see us, or get in touch to find out more.

How you can help

Livewire has a great bunch of volunteers working to support young people in our world-class live music venue. We are always keen to hear from adult and young volunteers who are interested in supporting our young people at various levels and generally assisting in the day-to-day running of youth work provision.

Who we work with

We’ve very pleased to have a wide range of organisations provide support for our charity. They have all shown great belief that creating positive outcomes and opportunities for young people, nurturing talent and creating great stories is important and worth supporting.
