Advocacy & Policy

Sound Sense plays a key role in reporting on projects that deal with major issues. Our research reports, information packs, journals and advocacy activities enable those working in community development, regeneration, health and education to see the benefits of community music in their field of work. And community music workers themselves learn from each other's experiences.
