Who we are
Nordoff Robbins is a national music therapy charity dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults across the UK.
- We use music therapy and other music services to help a range of people with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, mental health problems, stroke, brain injury, depression and life-threatening or terminal illnesses, such as cancer. All of the people we help have one uniting factor - music dramatically improves their quality of life.
- We provide professional Masters training for music therapists, along with various short courses and workshops which are open to everyone interested in learning more about music and well-being.
- Our Research work is building the evidence for music therapy and helps us inform and train the practitioners of the future.
We are part of an international network of Nordoff Robbins organisations all drawing inspiration from the innovative work of our founders Paul Nordoff and Clive Robbins.
No other organisation uses music to reach so many people, in so many contexts, with such consistently high levels of expertise. The power of music affects us all – through Nordoff Robbins it can transform lives.
