The vocalist will develop the confidence, motivation and skills of the women taking part to prepare them for a longer-term music programme empowering women offenders to create a Songbook.

We are looking for a vocalist who wants to play a positive role in these women’s future, who will empower people to find their voice by creating safe spaces to explore ideas.
