Suffolk & Norfolk Youth Action

SNYA is a young exciting organisation committed to engage young people in positive community based projects. SNYA is a youth forum which allows young people to create projects that they feel will make a difference to their community.

Through a committed group of young people based at Attleborough and Long Stratton, we run a newspaper, recording studio, youth council and radio station. Utilizing our mobile studio and remote broadcast equipment we are able to engage with many more young people from rural isolated locations from across Norfolk and Suffolk.

AltCorner | Alternative Music News, Reviews and Interviews

So today (10th December 2014), Bradley Biddlecombe, previous broadcaster on SNYA Radio for many years, is proud to announce the official launch of AltCorner something which he has been working on for a long time!
AltCorner is a new alternative music website based in the UK which will feature the latest news, interviews, band profiles and reviews for bands who need recognition the most. Some of the best bands currently are local and underground but within the current music industry often rock and alternative genres are overlooked or ignored.
So, please get involved by going on to the website and taking a look!
Of course, if you have any questions please email: [email protected] and don't forget to like the page and twitter(@AltCornerMusic) that would be superb! Alt Corner is the link between new Alternative music and your ears. Full of News, Reviews, Interviews and Band Profiles of your soon-to-be favourite bands.

[11/26/14]   An opportunity has arisen for a singer in a rock/alternative rock band based in Wymondham. After a successful run of gigs in Wymondham, Attleborough and many village fetes, this band recorded at SNYA Studios in 2013.
As the band has evolved, an opportunity has come along for a new singer to lead the band into a new era. If you are aged between 14 and 16 years old and would like to audition, then send us an email to [email protected] 26/11/2014

Youth Action Board Documents - Supporting Young People in Norfolk - Momentum

On Friday, 31st October 2014, SNYA Radio broadcast live from the ‘Gift of the YAB’ conference held at The Kings Centre, Norwich. The ‘Youth Advisory Board’ (YAB) event saw the’ Young Commissioners’ come together from across Norfolk; seven ‘Youth Advisory Boards’ have been established as part of Norfolk’s strategy to enable local communities to meet young people's needs.
Membership is drawn from all the key agencies locally, together with young people themselves. These boards have a role in pulling together a clear picture of young people’s needs across their district.
Young Commissioners, from the Breckland area, kicked off the conference, by introducing a group of traditional African dancers called ‘AFROLUSO’ from Great Yarmouth before the event was officially opened by the Chairman of the County Council, Cllr Brian Hannah.
The Conference continued with each area’s ‘Young Commissioners’ giving their presentations about the ‘European Youth Exchange’ trips they had undertaken and personal perspectives on what the YAB had done for them, as individuals.
Our SNYA radio team of Jamie Hall, Adam Bethell, Imogen and Verity Humby and Steve Thomas was on hand to provide the entertainment and demonstrate radio broadcasting; whilst other young people, in attendance, danced in the isles. SNYA broadcast live visuals of the event on Youtube and provided a constant update of photos and text on Twitter, for those people who could not be there.
Lots of agencies that have provided services or supported the YAB’s were present including: YMCA, Benjamin Foundation, Momentum, Victory Housing, South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group, Family Voice, Brundall C of E Church, MTM Youth Services CIC, Sprowston Youth Engagement Project, MAP, Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD), Mancroft Advice Project (MAP), The Discovery Centre, MIND and the Matthew Project.
If you feel passionate about your area, want be involved with the decision making process, and would like to see the best services for young people where you live, then you can get involved by visiting Momentum is a membership based charity that acts as an umbrella organisation to those working with children and young people, within the voluntary and community sector in Norfolk.
