Moving Voices UK is the charitable arm of Bombo Productions established in 2018. Together with Dr Victoria Jassey and David Pattman, Moving Voices UK has a board of trustees Caroline Stagg, Sandra Morales Cordovez and Anoop Rattan who oversee the aims and objectives of the project. Moving Voices UK supports Female Survivors of Human Trafficking transition and integrate into the wider community through group singing by working with an established mixed-gendered, intergenerational choir, Coro de Clave. Participation in this project provides vulnerable women with the opportunity to explore creativity, build confidence, participate in live performances, engage in local social activities and develop community cohesion.
We are pleased to announce that we have received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to support workshops and performances for marginalised women in 2022.
