Orchestra of St John's Community Leadership Development 12 Feb 2018

OSJ’s focus is to bring world-class musicians and music-making into the community in meaningful ways. In addition to concert programming that brings large numbers of people together for shared musical experiences, OSJ routinely delivers more intimate performances in unusual spaces, such as the Ashmolean Museum and importantly in Oxfordshire schools and care homes for autistic children (often 4 per week to over 100 children a day) and special needs adults. We do this work in collaboration with the associated charity Music for Autism, by bringing a small team of musicians with John Lubbock (Music Director) as animateur to give short concerts to each class, sometimes to the school as a whole. Such concerts are hardly one-way events, but rather students are encouraged to engage with the musicians, move, sing, and even sometimes conduct the group. For everyone, but especially for the more severely handicapped children and adults, the live music experience enhances their lives like nothing else. The best evidence of value are the testimonials from the carers. We aim to adopt this kernel and broaden the orchestra’s engagement with the community. It is early days but projects include ‘the Compassion project’, ‘OSJ Engage’ (haiku and watercolours), and ‘OSJ Everywhere!’

Specialist parenting courses for ex-offenders - improving family life 27 Feb 2018

This grant will be spent on delivering three specialist Nurturing Programme Family Links parenting courses specifically aimed at ex-offenders both in custody and also for those in the community. Each parenting course will run for a total of 12 weeks including a pre-delivery and evaluation session. The parenting course is a Nurturing Programme designed to help parents who are ex-offenders to manage their feelings and behaviour while becoming more positive and nurturing in their relationships with their children and with each other. Learning modules will include giving praise, discipline, family rules, personal power and self-esteem, communicating feelings and stages of child development. For Aspire's clients, who come from very deprived backgrounds and may not have had positive experiences of parenting growing up, these courses are invaluable to break unhealthy cycles of behaviour. We expect that 24 ex-offenders will attend these courses (8 learners per course) and once completed, they will benefit from greater emotional literacy in parenting skills designed to greatly strengthen family life and protect children from future antisocial behaviour. The indirect beneficiaries of this project will be in excess of 96 people.
