Rock On is also piloting different approaches to music making in housing support programmes managed by Access Community Trust.
These special programmes include a series of taster sessions, to find out how best to engage with the different communities, followed by a specially developed mini-project, delivered at a time and in a place chosen by the participants.
In summer 2018, Rock On will provide taster sessions at Coppice Court in Lowestoft. Coppice Court offers supported housing for homeless families with children aged between 3 and 18 years old. Residents can stay for up to 18 months, during which time support is given to help them achieve independent living.
The taster sessions will be followed by a 6-week project, delivered at the home, and working towards a specific musical goal, as identified and agreed by the participants.
Rock On will also be running taster sessions at the Haven in Lowestoft, which offers accommodation for young parents aged up to 25, and their babies, and it is hoped to work at another supported housing unit, most probably in Felixstowe.
