String of Hearts CIC tackles isolation by providing people aged over 50 with supported access to music-making. We deliver activities where members of the community can connect, share ideas and explore music together, improving wellbeing and self-expression. Our musicians facilitate activities such as improvisation, lyric writing, poetry and singing, which enable participants to develop their confidence and express their feelings in a safe space.
We challenge stigma surrounding ageing by showcasing older people's skills, engaging particularly with those whose socio-economic status prevents them from being able to access creative activity.
String of Hearts is based in Sale, Greater Manchester, and reaches people living at home in Sale, Wythenshawe and Stretford.
