Become a Friend

Friends of Music in Hospitals & Care have played a vital role in the development of the charity over the years. The continued support from Friends means nearly 1,500 children and adults receiving care or treatment in hospitals, care homes and community settings including hospices and day centres across the UK benefit from the healing power of live music each year.

We know that live music heals. It helps relieve frustration, stress and feelings of isolation. It can also reduce the perception of pain. It brings back memories and helps create new ones. When people enjoy music together, they feel more connected. Our live music can transform relationships between patients and healthcare professionals, residents and carers. The support of our Friends has been crucial to connecting people with live music throughout the country.

Please consider becoming a Friend or renewing your commitment by setting up a Direct Debit with a suggested donation of £4 per month to help us continue to improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through live music. 

From £4 per month our Friends receive:

  • Friends welcome letter and pin badge
  • Friends newsletters by post and email
  • Exclusive playlists and social media profile banner
  • Invitation to annual showcase event (currently online)

Only thanks to your support will we help more people benefit from the healing power of live music.
