The Momentum sing and movement programme
The Momentum singing and movement programme is funded to pilot in Devon and Torbay within Day and Residential Care Centres. 

The programme takes learners on a 45 minute journey of creative, multisensory movement, through to 45 minutes of noisey, and boisterous multisensory singing, with instruments and fun, improving not just the fitness, but the health and wellbeing of participants.

Find Your Voice is a social enterprise formed with strengthening the youth voice, at its heart. We use youth centric contemporary music and spoken word based activities to deliver, employability, presentation, communication and community action based workshops, either as part of the music curriculum or an extended service. We have a proven track record in delivering targeted outcomes via high energy, holistic, contemporary workshops.

Find Your Voice set out to bring the breadth of experiences available in the private sector, into the public sector, expanding the world of our often disassociated and vulnerable participants. Our workshops address truancy, communication, presentation and confidence and by working alongside schools and colleges, we promote mutual trust and awareness within schools and local communities.

Music is just the starting point, personal, social and community achievement waits at the finish.

Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
