music changes young people’s lives

SUPPORT US

The support FOSYM is able to give to young musicians across Staffordshire is thanks to the generosity of individuals through donations and membership, or through time volunteering and attending events.

You can help make a difference to the musical lives of young people in Staffordshire – find out how below:

FOSYM VOLUNTEERS

We have a team of volunteers who help at music activities in which FOSYM is involved. Volunteers help with stewarding, organising raffles and selling refreshments for instance.  This help is invaluable.

If you wish to find out more about volunteering then please contact FOSYM Secretary and Volunteer Co-ordinator, Jennifer Mason: jenny.mason@entrust-music.co.uk

Please note: FOSYM volunteers will be asked to complete a DBS application – provided free of charge.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Please spread the word about the work that FOSYM does to support the power of music as an educational tool. So much has been scientifically proven about the benefits of music socially, emotionally and intellectually and with your help FOSYM can get this message through to as many people as possible.

Your help in increasing our membership and donations means more young people can benefit.
