Looked After Children

The Boom Dang Foundation has worked in partnership with Sedbergh Drive (part of Children’s Services) for the past 8 years to deliver music sessions to Looked After Children. We are currently running a Youth Music funded project called Beat Loop. Working at Sedbergh Drive (Kendal), Hawthwaite Lane (Barrow-in-Furness), Over-End (Whitehaven) and Blackwell Road (Carlisle), we run music sessions using Garageband, Live Loops, Boom Dang drums, keyboards and a mobile recording studio. We run weekly sessions, holiday clubs and show + tells. Beat Loop builds confidence amongst the young people, that whilst taking part in the music session, learn new skills. New friendships are formed, trust in adults is gained and leadership is supported. Young people are supported to achieve a Bronze Arts Award.
