Music therapy: Changing lives

Every day our music therapists change the lives of vulnerable and isolated people across the UK. People like Evie, Ed, Eddie and Genesis, who live with unimaginable challenges – including cancer, head trauma, dementia and autism. Get Loud will enable us to reach more people in more places and provide more services to those who need our support.

Watch their stories here, and see how music therapy has helped to change their lives. 

Earlier this July, Lesley Coombs set herself the incredible challenge of completing the London to Paris Bike Ride, and we're honoured that she chose to do it in support of Nordoff Robbins. Here Lesley tells us about her journey, in her own words.

Thank you Lesley!

Our Director of Music Services, Simon Procter, was present at Portcullis House for the launch, and writes below:
