Support our work

With your help, we can transform the lives of children and adults through the power of music – whether it’s by giving a person living with dementia the care and support they need or giving a non-verbal child a way to express themselves and communicate.

At our globally renowned research centre, we’re studying the effects of music therapy for people living with dementia and those recovering from serious brain injuries.

We’re also training the next generation of music therapists as well as providing a vital service to the communities of Cambridgeshire with practical music therapy sessions.

And with your support, we can continue to improve our understanding and expand this pioneering project across the UK and the world, helping improve more people’s lives at a time when they need it the most.
