Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy is a music charity, dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults across the UK. Through music therapy and other music services, they support thousands of people each year with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, mental health problems, brain injury, depression or a life-threatening or terminal illness, such as cancer.
Nordoff Robbins delivers over 45,000 music therapy sessions a year in many different settings including schools, hospitals, care homes and their own Centres. Music therapy helps people in many different ways. For some it has physical benefits, for others emotional or social ones. It can help people feel more motivated, social and self-confident. It gives people hope when times are rough. All of the people helped every day by Nordoff Robbins have one uniting factor - music dramatically improves their quality of life. Music can help reach people in a way nothing else can.
Nordoff Robbins receives no government funding and is completely reliant on voluntary donations and support to provide their life transforming services.

Sparks is a unique children's charity that seeks to find cures for conditions affecting babies, children and expectant mothers. Our lifesaving work tackles a number of life threatening illnesses including Neuroblastoma, the biggest single cause of cancer deaths in one to five year-olds.
All of our pioneering, groundbreaking work has a single aim: to give every child the chance to be born healthy and grow up healthy. Our breakthrough research has helped thousands of children who only a few years ago may not have survived, let alone grow up, experience and share the simple joys we all take for granted.
When you ask any expectant parent if they want a boy or a girl, the answer is almost always the same, they don't care as long as the baby's healthy. That is what Sparks is about.
