Our work is aimed at combating social and economic exclusion and marginalisation to create a more cohesive society. Recent projects have included the Grenfell Girl’s Group, Traveller’s Girls and Boys, and football coaching at the Westway. We work with other providers to provide a young mum’s group, a drug cessation project, and a disability project.

The National Youth Arts Trust (NYAT) is a performing arts charity that widens access to the Arts for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds – through giving bursaries for music, dance, and drama lessons, running youth theatre projects, and taking children to the theatre, often for the first time.

Vocalized aims to:

  • Raise aspirations, confidence, self-awareness, and wellbeing.
  • Learn new skills and develop as an artist.
  • Create performances for the local community.
  • Give students the opportunity to learn from industry professionals.
  • Be easily accessible for those attending local schools or residing in the surrounding area.
  • Help develop a life-long interest in the performing arts.
  • Spot and nurture new talent.     

All levels of ability and confidence are welcome, and each participant will have their own personal development plan to help them achieve their goals.

Applicants will be asked to complete an enhanced DBS check prior to the start of the post and safeguarding online training.
