Welcome to Pro Corda's Young Carers & Siblings Performing Arts Programme!

Pro Corda is proud to be launching a new Performing Arts programme for young carers and siblings of children with additional needs and disabilities. The programme is available to any young carer or sibling aged 10-18 who lives in Suffolk.

Pro Corda’s Performing Arts programme is committed to helping young carers find their voices, share experiences and to develop confidence through the arts.

What's it all about?

Participants will come to Leiston Abbey on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the summer holidays. They will create their very own Young Carers podcast series, which will be broadcast via Pro Corda’s popular podcast channel “Live at the Abbey”. Each individual will embark on a bespoke journey tailored to their individual interests and skills. There will also be opportunities to collaborate and create in small groups.

The programme will include podcast production, including 1:1 sessions with seasoned radio broadcaster Noel Vine plus creative instrumental and vocal tuition with Andrew Quartermain and Laura Feeney. There will also be opportunities for work experience placements at Pro Corda’s community concert series.

How much does it cost?

There is a one-off £50 enrolment fee for the placement which includes all tuition and workshops.

The Young Carers and Siblings Performing Arts programme is kindly supported by Suffolk County Council and Activities Unlimited.

How can I find out more?

The programme launches on 22nd July so we are hosting an Open Day on Saturday 17th July for Young Carers, Siblings and their Parents to come along and find out much more about the brand new programme, get a tour of Leiston Abbey and have a go at broadcasting your very own podcast!
