About this cause
Hastings Thrives aims to overcome barriers to children as they learn through training and enrichment. It takes an inclusive approach, working with schools and the community to involve all children in Hastings, particularly those who are neuro diverse. It runs a successful annual school songwriting competition.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our project will enable children to express themselves through song, working collaboratively to create a piece of work which they can show the world. Songs are the last memories to go and so will live with them as a positive expression for the rest of their lives. Our feedback shows that children gain so many skills and emotional support through collaborative songwriting.
