Sistema Scotland’s mission is to improve lives and strengthen communities using music and nurturing relationships. We currently work with 2,800 children and young people across five communities: Big Noise Raploch and Big Noise Fallin in Stirling; Big Noise Govanhill in Glasgow; Big Noise Torry in Aberdeen; and Big Noise Douglas in Dundee. Big Noise Wester Hailes in Edinburgh will open its doors in spring 2022.

Independent evaluation by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health has shown that Big Noise fosters confidence, develops teamwork, builds resilience and promotes aspiration in the children and young people who take part.
