The charity offers vital social and financial support to over 450 people every year but is set to lose £100,000 of council funding in the next financial year, which prompted Amurco to help.

Amurco founder Howard Murphy said:

The aim of the workshops was to create a song to help raise awareness for Streetlife, while giving the young people a voice and a creative outlet for their experiences.
