Partnerships are central to what we do and how we do it. We are developing new partnerships so that we can grow our post-release programmes

Changing Tunes at St Mungo's Recovery College

We are delighted to be collaborating with St Mungo's Recovery College in Bristol to help us begin this growth. We run a music and mentoring programme at their centre, enabling us to engage ex-prisoners who are homeless, or living in temporary accommodation.

Our creative programme complements the practical support that St Mungo's provides, offering 'joined up' support to ex-prisoners. 

This project has been co-developed and is led by one of our former beneficiaries, who is now a Changing Tunes Musician-in-Residence. It is really popular and we look forward to continuing this collaboration into the long-term.

We are developing new partnerships to replicate this model and expand our post-release offer. Covid19 has increased the demand for this work and reinforced the importance of collaborations that combine resources and know-how
