Where we work

Since 2003 we’ve supported over 9000 vulnerable people in challenging circumstances in over 90 prisons, YOIs, secure hospitals, detention centres, and community settings.

We work with people across society including:

At risk young people, people with disabilities and mental health conditions, carers, long-term unemployed people, those convicted of offences, music students and businesses. The transformative power of gamelan has such a positive and empowering impact with all the people we work with.

We started out in 2003 working in secure settings such as prisons and then in secure hospitals a few years later. We realised the positive impact that taking part on a Good Vibrations course can have, so in 2009 we began working in community settings, with ex-offenders in probation centres, with young people at risk of offending and with people with mental health issues.
