Services For Education is a registered charity (Charity no. 1148848). We use the power of learning and music to create and build confidence amongst children, young people, adults and communities across the city of Birmingham. Our mission is to bring music and learning to life.
The charity was formed in 2012, with the aim of providing more opportunities for children of all ages and abilities in Birmingham to reach their full potential, regardless of their background.
Since then, our music ensembles and community based music projects have helped thousands of young people engage in music, impacting lives in so many ways. We have also worked with adults and people with disabilities in the community, bringing music to within their reach.
We know that music has a profound impact on children because we witness it every day. We have a vision to reach as many children across Birmingham as possible, sending them on a journey through music, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances.
We receive no statutory or government funding towards our work, and as a registered charity, financial donations and support are vital in enabling us to continue to deliver our projects, grow our reach and engage those who need it most.
