Sign Up for the 2017 Spinathon for Nordoff Robbins

We're excited to announce a new partnership with Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

Nordoff Robbins were incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of Rick Parfitt over Christmas. Rick, alongside Francis Rossi, was a patron of Nordoff Robbins and a big supporter of our work. We were lucky enough to know Rick well and he spent time getting to know our work and the people we helped and he was a regular visitor to our events and our HQ to see our music therapy first hand.

We are delighted to share the Nordoff Robbins Academic & Research Review 2016.

This review summarises the academic and research work conducted this year by colleagues at Nordoff Robbins.

Clive Burnage from @20 tells us how their initiatives help charities like Nordoff Robbins

"The @20 concept evolved from the meeting of like-minded musicians / music equipment addicts on a Facebook group. People from all over the country sell, buy and trade lots of equipment there and an idea formed around 18 months ago to put up an item in a ‘raffle’ whereby a number of people buy tickets, then once the market value of the item has been achieved, a name is drawn at random to determine the winner.
