Sistema Scotland is on a mission to transform lives through music. Through its ‘Big Noise’ programme, Sistema Scotland believes that children from disadvantaged backgrounds can gain significant social benefits by playing in a symphony orchestra.

The GCPH is now working with Sistema Scotland and is leading the evaluation of the Big Noise programme in Raploch, Stirling and in Govanhill, Glasgow.

The first part of the evaluation will conclude by March 2015 but, as this plan will make clear, a much longer timescale is required to truly assess the range of impacts and outcomes of the Big Noise programmes.
