Nordoff Robbins and sister organisation Nordoff Robbins Scotland have merged to form a single UK-wide Nordoff Robbins charity.
Last year, Nordoff Robbins and Nordoff Robbins Scotland together helped almost 10,000 people through music therapy and the combined charity is now set to expand its reach and help even more vulnerable and isolated people.
Chair of Nordoff Robbins David Munns said: "Nordoff Robbins has always been proud to support our sister charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland and by officially joining forces we will be able to change the lives of even more people through music. I am thrilled to welcome the chair of Nordoff Robbins Scotland, Heather Gardner, to our unified Nordoff Robbins Board of Trustees, as we embark on a new and exciting journey and continue to grow from strength to strength."
The charity is dedicated to supporting individuals with physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs through the specialist use of music.
Julie Whelan, CEO of Nordoff Robbins, said: “This move to merge with our sister organisation Nordoff Robbins Scotland is a significant moment in the charities history. It is a moment which brings with it scope for greater work, broader reach and more lives changed through music. In our hopes to achieve our objectives, we move forward stronger, and with the support of our Scottish colleagues we look to the future with vigour and confidence.”
