At Nordoff Robbins we work hard to offer the highest quality of service to our beneficiaries, supporters, stakeholders and the general public at all times and we regularly ask people and organisations to whom we provide our services for feedback. Letting us know what works well and what doesn’t will help us to improve our services. Very occasionally, things do go wrong. If you are unhappy with the service we provide, we would like to know so we can put things right if we possibly can, and make sure we improve our services in the future.

The Nordoff Robbins Community Choir are looking for new members. The choir is an open group for anyone interested in singing, and is a great way to develop your skills and confidence in a fun and supportive environment. 

The choir rehearses every Tuesday evening, from 6.30 - 8pm. We sing a whole range of songs, from the latest pop hits to international folk music - and everything in between. There will also be regular performance opportunities throughout the year.

Get Loud, our national awareness day on 13 September, saw some of music’s top stars come together – including Jake Bugg, Level 42, Anne Marie, 67, Jackmaster with Ben UFO, and Youngr – to perform one-off shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow, raising funds and awareness for our life-changing music therapy services.

NE-YO gave his support to Get Loud, kindly donating free tickets to Nordoff Robbins supporters, therapists and beneficiaries from his gig at the O2 Apollo Manchester that evening.

We celebrated the power of music in Parliament on Monday 11 September, as part of our national Get Loud campaign to help change lives through music. We were joined by Lord Tim Clement-Jones, Kate Green MP, and celebrated concert pianist Nicholas McCarthy, who spoke compellingly on Nordoff Robbins' work and the impact of music therapy on our beneficiaries.

Ed is recovering from severe head trauma, after being hit by a speeding taxi five years ago. Music therapy played a big part in his recovery – he arrived in hospital unconscious and six months later, walked out singing.

Genesis is autistic and he faces challenges with his speech and communication. Music therapy is helping him to extend his social and communicative skills, and develop his musical abilities.

Evie was just 17 when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and the operation to remove it paralysed her left side and also affected her voice. Singing was a huge passion for Evie, and music therapy has helped her to rebuild her confidence, improve vocal strength and recapture her identity.

Eddie lived with dementia. A gifted musician and previously a drummer in a band, music therapy helped Eddie reconnect with his passion and communicate where words failed him.

Thank you so much to NE-YO, who has donated free tickets to Nordoff Robbins supporters, therapists and beneficiaries from his 13 September show at the O2 Apollo Manchester - in support of our national awareness day Get Loud.

Each day our music therapists offer a collaborative, live music making experience to help people living with significant challenges. By donating his tour tickets to our community, NE-YO hopes others can enjoy sharing this music experience as well.
