BRIT Trust Spotlight: Key4Life

11November, 2020

The work of the BRIT Trust, and the many other charities it supports, continues during COVID-19, and now becomes increasingly important.

One is Key4Life whose mission is to reduce youth re-offending through the delivery of an innovative programme to those in prison and those at risk of going to prison.

Shak, (pictured) who has been through the Key4Life programme and still currently benefits from it, was joined by his mentor Jonathan Morrish of the BRIT Trust, at the world famous Abbey Road Studios.

Shak has already released songs under his name General Sneeks, was there to put down tracks and work on his current music project planning to release an EP or Album next year.

Abbey Road is owned by Universal Music and huge thanks must go to them for enabling Shak to have two highly profitable days in Studio 3. Universal Music UK is a huge supporter of the BRIT Trust who in turn make an annual donation to help Key4LIfe carry out the incredibly important work they do.

Shak, 26, first got involved last year with the Key4Life programme that works with young people in the justice system to help them re-evaluate their lives. Only 14% of those who have been through Key4Life's prison and preventative programmes have re-offended, compared to the national proven re-offending rate of 64% one-year post-release.

Jonathan Morrish is actively engaged with many of the projects and initiatives around the BRIT Trust. He chairs the BRIT School PR Committee meeting and works closely with the Trust PR Committee. Key4Life is one of the many charities that the BRIT Trust support and with whom he is closely associated.
