Based in Woking, this organisation runs intergenerational music projects across Surrey. Its work focusses on targeting different groups of people over 60 who are affected by loneliness and social exclusion. Projects offer regular music therapy sessions, and bring together people from different generations to share the experience of making music together, improve wellbeing, and reduce isolation.
A grant of £5,000 has been awarded towards the ‘Making Musical Bridges’ project at the June 2019 Trustee meeting. Five care homes and primary schools from areas including Guildford, Surrey Heath, Waverley, and Woking, will participate over the next year. The older people and children will work together on the sessions, creating music themes and activities.
