The track How to Fly was written by a group of young care leavers from the Springboard Project and is about their real life experiences of being in care. The young care leavers also acted in, directed and produced the music video, with the support of Inspired Youth. The track features York rapper Kritical and vocalist Isi Dawson.

The track and video were premiered at York St John University in front of an audience of almost 200 people, including Lord Mayor of York Julie Gunnell and guest speaker music journalist and author Paolo Hewitt who grew up in care. It is a truly inspirational piece of work!
