Rhythmix is one of the UK’s leading music charities, delivering a large range of music making opportunities for young people across the South East region. Since 1999, Rhythmix has worked with more than 40,000 young people, enabling their creative activity through music and developing their personal and social skills.
Rhythmix works with its partners in Youth Support Services, such as Youth Workers, Arts Officers, Crime Reduction and Youth Offending Teams, to identify young people in challenging circumstances, and enables those young people to shape and develop projects that respond to their needs.
Rhythmix manages and delivers the Youth Music Action Zone (Lottery funded by Youth Music) for Brighton & Hove, East Sussex, Kent and Surrey. This programme is the direct engagement with young people and accounts for 70% of the total activity of the charity, delivering programmes that address Exclusion, Challenging Circumstances and Young People at Risk and encourage the talent and potential of these young people.
