Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnership is the Youth Arts Partnership organisation for Wiltshire Council.  We work with children and young people to enrich their lives through accessible high quality arts activity. Our focus is to support new ways of working, present exciting innovative arts initiatives and to reach out to children and young people in challenging circumstances. Our practice is to develop work which responds to young people, giving voice and creativity to all of our partnerships.

We work to connect organisations to new ways of working with arts and culture by responding to local need. We look for ways to network, encourage best practice and advocate for others. We value partnership with individuals and organisations that have a shared ambition.

Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnership (WYAP), part of Wiltshire Council’s Early Help Service has been working with the Council’s EOTAS (Education Other Than At School) team to do music work with young people unable to attend mainstream schools for health reasons. The three-month pilot project was part of their wider Music Matters programme. In this case study (written by Anita Holford), the project leads from WYAP and EOTAS, and the musicians involved, outline what happened and what they learned.
