Integral to our approach to all our work is capacity building: Helping our Local Partners themselves 'grow' their use of music with the children and adults in their care. In the UK this translates into many different things, including the consultancy we offer music therapists and other organisations to help them strengthen their practice.
Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust Music Therapy Service invited us to do just this when we undertook a review of their Under 5s Service last year. It was fascinating to return to the team at the end of last week to hear of all the impressive and interesting changes they have been making and the impact they feel the review had on their efficiency and reach.
We welcome requests for such support from any music therapists. Do get in touch if you are interested to know more.
