Vic Studios has received further financial support to help it improve and diversify its services and emerge stronger from the Covid 19 pandemic. It comes in the form of a combined grant and loan funded by the Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales, administered by the WCVA.
“Securing this involved detailed due diligence of our service development plans and internal governance. It means we can push ahead with our ambitious plans. We are hopeful that the end of the pandemic is in sight. When we get there, children and young people, whether referred to us by schools and agencies, or coming to us for music lessons they can no longer access at school, deserve the best possible standard of tutoring, counselling, creative nurturing and support. This funding means we can deliver this” says Chris Lloyd, Chair of Vic Studios.
Vic Studios have secured a new premises in Rhosrobin, Wrexham and are refurbishing this with a plan to reopen in the summer and welcome everyone back.
“These are testing times for the children our music services support. Online activities have a part to play in keeping them engaged but in terms of building their often fragile confidence there is no substitute for the face to face coaching and development we provide. Our great team of staff, freelance tutors and volunteers are fully committed to making that happen.” added Chris Lloyd.
