To receive any communications or announcements from the Leader of the Council including a presentation from representatives of Sound Communities.


The Cabinet received a presentation from representatives of Sound Communities.  Mike, Jack and Liam, shared their personal experiences of the impact Sound Communities had on their lives.  Mike advised Members that Sound Communities used digital radio and music production to connect, engage and inspire communities.  Members were informed that Sound Communities had a number of strands:


·         education and community provision - going into schools and providing after school activities;

·         early prevention – working with young people who were at risk of exclusion;

·         employment – working with young people who were not in employment, education or training to develop confidence and skills for the work place; and

·         production – an opportunity to showcase what young people have created and produced.


The presentation concluded with a rap from Liam and questions from Members. 


The Leader of the Council thanked Mike, Jack and Liam for the presentation and reflected upon the need for the Council to consider how it engages with young people.
