Irene Taylor Trust
Established in 1995, the Irene Taylor Trust delivers creative music projects which aid the process of rehabilitation, education and life skills development of offenders, ex-offenders and at-risk young people. Music in Prisons, which offers groups the opportunity to create their own original music as a band; Making Tracks, which supports disadvantaged young people who are not in education, employment or training; and Sounding Out, which consists of creative projects and work placements. In 2017, the charity organised 321 days of activity with 448 participants. Funding from The Fore will enable the Irene Taylor Trust to develop its proven consultancy and training offer to major international arts organisations. The resulting increase in sustainable unrestricted income will enable increases in ITT’s capacity to contract with prisons and help secure the future of the organisation.
