To make most effective use of our resources, Sound Sense works in close partnership with other organisations, to fulfil our promise on research, advocacy & policy and training & CPD.

Our current partners are:

This series of Symposia launched in 2019 with the aim of bringing together practitioners who teach Community Music in formal, informal and non-formal sectors. Symposia will take place in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
ICCM, York St John University
International Centre for Community Music aims to provide a global forum through which community music research, teaching, scholarship, professional practice and pedagogy can be nurtured and developed.

ArtWorks Alliance
We are organisations with strategic interests in participatory arts, including community arts, socially-engaged arts, voluntary arts, and arts in education and learning. We come together as ArtWorks Alliance to help participatory arts in the UK become better.
The Music Education Council acts as a medium for bringing together in a working relationship those organisations and institutions in the United Kingdom involved in music education and music education training, thereby creating a common meeting ground and opportunities for the exchange of information and the promotion of joint or connected activities.

Our current supporters are:

Thomas Deane Trust
Thomas Deane Trust is a very small family-run grant-giving charity. By 2020 we will have invested in a small number of projects in the field of environment, community music, advice work and end of life care that we expect will make a difference.
