About us

Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC) is a charity providing live music sessions for people who are receiving care or treatment in healthcare settings across the UK.

Since 1948, MiHC has been breaking down the barriers which prevent people, regardless of their health or well-being, from accessing the benefits of live music. Our sessions are designed to humanise clinical settings, reach and connect people, encourage communication and meaningful interactions and evoke emotions and memories when it matters most.

Each unique concert is delivered by professional musicians and tailored to meet the needs of the audience group. From the Shetland Isles and the Highlands of Scotland to Northern Ireland, the Valleys of Wales and down to the south coast of England, we operate in hospitals, hospices, care homes, day centres, special schools and community settings too.

We have offices in England, Scotland and Wales, with over 450 musicians spread far and wide. Together, and thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to bring the benefits of engagement with live music to over 100,000 people in care each year.

  • Music can move mountains can’t it, and it can move people’s hearts.
