2018 is an exciting year for the Nordoff Robbins in the North East. We now have a team of therapists delivering music therapy in a variety of different contexts within the area and have just opened our new music therapy centre in Jesmond, Newcastle. Graham Wylie has generously gifted us a building and covered all the costs of the renovations. The centre will have up to three designated music therapy spaces (see plan).

Richard helps the young people to engage, communicate and experience positive interactions through music. 

Richard said:

We were pleased to announce earlier this week that the trustees of Nordoff Robbins England and Wales and Nordoff Robbins Scotland have decided to consider a merger to form one UK charity.  This is an incredibly exciting development, offering Nordoff Robbins UK, real opportunities to grow our music therapy services and to reach more vulnerable and isolated people in need of our support.

Nordoff Robbins England & Wales and Nordoff Robbins Scotland have always had a very close relationship as sister organisations; continually exploring ways in which we can strengthen our partnership and our joint commitment to Nordoff Robbins music therapy and changing more lives through music across the UK.

We are very excited to share with you the news that the trustees of Nordoff Robbins England & Wales and Nordoff Robbins Scotland have decided to consider a merger to form one UK charity.

Your support is hugely valuable to us.

As you know, we don’t receive Government funding and depend entirely on the support of people like you to make our life changing music therapy available to some of the most vulnerable and isolated people across the UK. Thanks to that support, in 2017 we were able to reach more people, with more music therapy sessions than ever before.

When Betsy was two-and-a-half, doctors discovered that she had a large brain tumour.  Her Mum, Rochelle tells Betsy’s story.

Betsy was a very content baby and toddler who slept and ate well and was developing like any other child. But just before Betsy’s second birthday she started to want to be carried all the time and often said she was ‘poorly’.
