Welcome to the UkuleleProject.co.uk website! Thank you for supporting us to combat loneliness one ukulele at a time

We believe in music for everyone

From Scotland to the South East, at the Ukulele Project, we are using the power of music, specifically the ukulele, to bring people together, foster connections, and address the challenges of loneliness while promoting overall well-being

how do we do this?

We grow and support sustainable ukulele groups and classes in partnership with charities, community groups, schools and libraries.
Our profits are used to donate ukuleles to schools, community groups and libraries.
There are numerous ways to support the work that we do from attending one of our events, buying some merch, booking a team buidling workshop, followng us on social media or donating monthly in exchange for access to our resources.

Our environmental pledge

It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. So since 2020, for every 30 ukuleles that we donate we pledge to plant 20 trees and promote a climate postitive workforce.
