Awards | Media

The Commitment to Youth Development recognises a business that has been successful in engaging with, supporting, mentoring and motivating young people whilst at the same time providing them with skills to develop their own characteristics, values and habits. Heavy Sound CIC received this year’s award. Their social mission is to transform the lives of young people and communities through creative engagement in alternative forms of music, such as rap and hip hop, DJ’ing, electronic music production, graphic design and film making. They work with young people considered furthest from the employment market, disengaged and socially excluded, and help them develop new skills, build self-esteem, and realise their potential to find positive destinations in further education and career options.
