Connecting, Engaging & Inspiring through Radio and Music Production





Listen to "Sounds Like Torbay" on Spreaker.



Soundlife was a 12 week project working with a small group of older people who have been identified as having low level depression and/or anxiety conditions in Torbay. We used a wide variety of creative radio storytelling activities in different locations across Torbay.




The key aims for Soundlife are to:

  • Reduced stress/anxiety/depression as a result of the 12 week intervention programme
  • Reduced social isolation and improved social connection
  • Improved confidence to meet new people and explore creative opportunities
  • Improved activation and self-management of physical and mental health conditions
  • Improved overall sense of wellbeing
