Formerly run by Southern Health, SoCo opened it’s doors to the group when Bedford House closed in 2010 and our Adult Learning Programme began.
The group has continued to meet weekly ever since and promotes the development of peer support learning through musical performance, songwriting and recording that spans a range of musical genres. As our longest running group, we have seen first hand the huge benefits consistent engagement in the arts brings to those with mental health issues and this group has enabled participants to develop friendships and social networks that have reached far beyond that of conventional support.
The group now runs from the Pavilion in Hoglands Park and we are currently looking for funding to secure its future and to support the continuation of an essential service to those living with mental health issues in Southampton. If you are able to support this group financially, please get in contact or visit our Giving Page.
