Frontline States initiated and managed projects and programmes facilitating change and development, principally in the arts sector…

…and continues to advocate for the arts and creativity as a way to change the world for the better, which is why it is proud to include “Working on the Frontline”, a song celebrating frontline workers in the NHS. It is taken from the fundraising album Song Club, released on 23 October 2020.  Donations can be made here.

“Working on the Frontline” was written and recorded by Neill MacColl and Kate St John, and is sung by Jessie Buckley & The Leonards. The video was made by Kitty MacColl and the words are spoken by NHS nurse Hannah Grace Deller.

And here’s the trailer for a new film about a friend of Frontline’s who has fought against injustice all his life…

And another from an organisation we support for its moral and ethical stance…
