“Music is a fantastic way to connect with these kids. They all relate to hip-hop and will mostly speak openly and frankly when writing a lyric. I am often surprised by their willingness to be truthful and vulnerable, and I have no doubt that music and song writing makes this possible. These kids’ lives are very chaotic, most are out of school and drifting so the achievement and completion of a recorded song is significant.”
– Justin Holland: SDTC Music Director
Over the years there have been a number of fantastic artworks created inside the Secure Welfare units.
The mosaic works are permanently exhibited on the walls and in the gardens.
