We meet our clients and their families where they need us most. This means we usually deliver our services at home, in the community, in hospital and in care. In these unprecedented times, we need to adapt our services to meet the need and our new focus will be to move our therapy online - we need your support to do this. Even more people will need our support as they become ever more isolated. We want to use music and Music Therapy to reach anyone who needs it during this time of crisis.Our impact on the community
We support over 2500 people a year - our youngest patient is 30 week gestational age and our oldest is 97 years of age. We are privileged to work with people across the life span and support them and their families to live their lives to the best potential.
