About Us

Hear our Director speak about how the charity began and what we do in this short film, made by The Media Trust for the Community Channel.

The Music as Therapy International office is run by a team of four on a part-time basis.  Although we are a small charity our achievements have still received some public recognition in recent years.  Most recently we were awarded "Highly Commended" in the category "Small Charity; Big Achiever" in the Third Sector Excellence Awards 2013.

This accolade follows our earlier Charity Award for International Aid and Development.  This was an award that recognises and celebrates excellence in the strategy and management of charities, perhaps the “how” rather than the “what” we do. It was great independent affirmation that we operate efficiently and that donations are well handled. This is a huge endorsement of our work and that of all our Local Partners.
This year we were also delighted to have our Interactive Music-Making course shortlisted for an Advancing Healthcare Award for the second time! This year we are in the category of 'Supporting the future workforce'. You can read more about the course here
In 2012 the Interactive Music-Making Learning Programme was shortlisted for an Advancing Healthcare Award in the category "Achieving Excellence in Learning and Development".

Music as Therapy International were awarded a BBC Radio 4 appeal slot in July 2012.  It aired on Sunday 1st and again on Thursday 5th July. We were delighted that Imelda Staunton agreed to present the appeal for us. Not only was this an opportunity to appeal to the public for support of our work but also reflected that the charity stood up to the scrutiny of the selection process.
