Our staff and associate team

‘Good Vibrations’ facilitators are highly experienced community musicians and expert group facilitators, able to work confidently and flexibly with challenging groups. All are Enhanced-DBS checked, with NOMS clearance to work in secure settings.

“The facilitators have been fantastic. Everything about it has been fantastic. I would not let anybody say anything bad about it.” Linda, a participant, 2017.

“The facilitators are on the ball, very friendly, inclusive and professional. There’s a mixture of having some idea as to what they want out of it, but also for allowing for the organic creativity of the group to come forward.” Errol, a participant, 2018.
