Nordoff Robbins
Play, dance or sing – everyone responds to music. It has a unique power and Nordoff Robbins harnesses this – with all its emotion, energy, resonance and rhythm – to reach children and adults whose lives are constrained by illness, disability, trauma or exclusion. Nordoff Robbins supporters are behind every life changing experience in music that we enable. We receive no statutory funding and are heavily reliant on voluntary donations to deliver 45,000 sessions every year – in schools, day centers, hospitals, and care homes across the UK, and in our Center and Units. Every one of these sessions helps to transform someone’s life.
