Reportage: Making friends through music

A new project in Halifax will provide young people and adults living with physical disabilities, learning difficulties and mental illness the opportunity to get involved in music, dance and drama.

Beat It is a series of workshops run by Imagineer Development based at Gibbet Street, Halifax.

Following on from similar events which ran in Bradford and Leeds, Beat It Halifax will help its participants to get involved with music, learn new skills, build confidence and make new friends.

The Beat It workshops will take place every Wednesday at 12.30-3.30pm from February 12.

Volunteer Amy Haswell, said: “It’s a really good way to get disabled people integrated into the community - there’s not many projects like this.”

Imagineer will also launch All Stars on February 27 to provide support sessions for the families and carers of people with disablities living in Halifax.
