Sing Inside delivers group singing workshops in prisons, connecting volunteers drawn from the local community with nearby prisons. Their workshops use musical learning to build confidence, self-worth, break down social stigma, encourage creativity and create and strengthen communities.

This report documents a four-day workshop which was run in collaboration with the Faculty of Music at Oxford University. It describes what was involved on each day and offers participant feedback and observations gained from project staff.

Using feedback forms participants reported an increase in confidence, valuing meeting new people, trying something different, time away from their cell and feeling more positive with an improved mood.
