One Size Does Not Fit All

One Size Does Not Fit All

Project goals and what we hope to achieve: 
We’re aiming at getting Music Therapy services funded and included as a part of the NHS and schools networks in Bucks. By offering Music Therapy services to people of all ages and differing needs, we hope to provide the evidence needed to change the current situation.
Why this project is important: 
Buckinghamshire needs a Music Therapy provision like other counties. Talking therapies are not appropriate for everyone, due to learning disabilities, speech & communication problems, mental health or brain injury. Everyone has a right to access a therapy that is right for them because ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.
What do you need?: 

Instruments, free or reduced rate venues across the county to run sessions from (where we can be noisy!) and money to fund the sessions / pay for the Music Therapists session fees / subsidse costs for those who would otherwise be unable to access the service.

We are already running services but are limited by who and how many people we can see due to limited funding and high costs of room hire. This is an ongoing project until we can start getting Local Authorites and local NHS commissioners to take notice of what we are doing and see the numerous benefits that Music Therapy can offer to many.
