Making a playlist is fun and easy when you know how. If you run into difficulties there are lots of places you can go for help. 

  • Our website
    Our resources aim to show you just how easy it is to make a playlist. If you’re new to playlists, have a look at our Get Started page. Do you prefer watching videos? Try our ‘How to’ videos on our YouTube channel.
  • Playlist for Life Help Point
    Playlist for Life provides free training and materials to community organisations so they can establish Help Points to spread the power of music locally and advise anyone who gets stuck.

    We have over 900 Help Points throughout the UK. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Help Points are closed to the public. However, many are still offering online support. If you would like to speak to someone in person, get in touch and we’ll help you out. 

  • Your local library
    Most libraries have free computers and internet access, and many have digital volunteers and/or workshops to help you. Some libraries are already operating Playlist for Life Help Points with trained Music Detectives close at hand to help you find and download music.
