Our Alternative Creative Education (ACE) programme incorporates accredited arts and creativity, generating a wealth of positive impacts.
The ACE programme enables young people to continue with their education. Within the programme we offer one to one support, a bespoke programme of accreditation options and opportunities on a termly, timetabled basis - equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to dream big and reach their goals. The ACE programme is delivered by professionally qualified, specialist staff, including youth/arts workers and where appropriate tutors for Maths and English.
GHS currently work with care leavers as they are commissioned to run our aftercare forum. They have done some amazing work with the young people in the group. They have developed their confidence, skills and attitudes to a point where they can help me train other professionals. They are very flexible and always deliver. They are young person focussed. This is due to the great team Caroline has assembled. It is also due to her leadership by example. This has created a caring, can do culture who are always ready to go the extra mile if required.
If you ask any of their service users you would get a glowing report about GHS. Young people in care who spend time at Gorse Hill have requested that their social workers spend time there so they can see how they should work with young people. I think this is the ultimate compliment

Behind Bars is a durational piece of work curated by Gorse Hill studios and funded by Trafford council. Behind bars consists of a range of music projects, activities and events all aimed around reducing the risk of crime and violence for young people. Through these projects and events we will encourage positive decision making, reduce criminal involvement, provide professional work experience and teach employability and entrepreneurial skills.
As our 1st step on the Behind Bars journey we held a small scale conference to explore violent and controversial content in modern music for artists, educators, audiences and communities. It was an event of talks, discussions and performances on 5th of December 2019 at Gorse Hill studios. In attendance the was an exciting and balanced mixture of professionals working with Young people, Music, Local authorities and Law, along with young people including many at risk of criminal involvement or violence, and general public. The whole event was recorded in podcast form which you can listen to here.
