ScAMPS, a unique Scarborough music group, has earned a place at the Children’s University.

Scarborough and North Yorkshire Children’s University has recognised the important work ScAMPS is doing in supporting young people to develop their creative and social skills.

ScAMPS workshops, which have been running for three years, bring together disabled and able-bodied youngsters to enjoy music and meets at the Friarage School in Scarborough.

ScAMPS is run under the umbrella of Scarborough arts development agency Create, which is delighted at the children’s university recognition.

Create director Wendy Holroyd said: “ScAMPS is a brilliant initiative, over the years bringing together a delightful mix of young people with a very wide range of abilities and disabilities who have been able to find common ground in a love for music.

“We are delighted that the work ScAMPS is doing has been recognised by the children’s university so that those taking part can use the sessions towards their children’s university qualifications – which is brilliant.”
