Music therapy can be a lifeline for people like Thomas. Without your help, music therapy is at risk of stopping for people who need it most.

This year we have been severely impacted by Covid-19. Most of our fundraising events and activities have all been cancelled meaning we are expecting to lose over 50% of our income in 2020, putting music therapy at risk of stopping for the people who need it most.

“The online choir’s been such a gift to us during lockdown; it’s brought this new virtual world of music to our living room and helped us connect to the world outside while we’re home with shielding Ava”

-Liz, Ava’s Mum
