Nordoff Robbins has developed music therapy for over 40 years to improve the quality of life for so many vulnerable and isolated people; living with autism, facing cancer treatment, dealing with dementia, physical and mental disabilities, brain injury, depression, trauma and those coming to the end of their lives. Our music therapists use music in a way for people to experience greater well-being, manage physical pain and emotional distress. It can also be transformational in developing or regaining key skills such as co-ordinated movement or even the ability to communicate.
Music can move us deeply. Nordoff Robbins’ expert therapists use music with the aim of helping people express and work through their needs and feelings, especially where doing so in words is difficult. For our beneficiaries, this can change everything. Children with autism find their voice, people with dementia experience a connection with others that has so often been lost, and people with chronic illnesses can find relief. We rely on our supporters to make all of this happen.
