The Music Pool is a registered charity and as such we rely on a wide variety of support and donations in order to sustain the full range of high quality projects we provide.  We are very proud to make participatory musical and other arts activities available to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, especially aiming to help those least able to take part because of disability, financial hardship or social isolation.  So much of our work goes beyond improving people's musical abilities - for many, our work is valued for all the additional benefits of improving quality of life; whether it is through giving people a means to socialise with others, building confidence, helping with mental health issues or providing respite care.
In the present economic climate, it is increasingly a struggle to meet the costs of our operations.
Your donations can make a big difference - please help us keep this essential work going.  Thank you
"I truly believe without the project, our residents would be missing out on a great musical, social and entertaining session.  Their lives and access to activities are so limited, surely, they cannot afford to lose such an important part of their lives"
- Therapy coordinator, The Martha Trust, Hereford
"We made some real progress with students that haven't responded to anything else.  We got one lad who never talks and has to go to a speech therapist two days a week, to get up in front of the whole school and people's parents and beatbox.
We didn't even know until afterwards that he had problems with speech." - Music Leader
"My daughter has Dyspraxia, a condition which effects her social development, and puts her firmly on the edge of most social groups.  The project has offered her an inclusiveness that she had not previously experienced... I further consider it to be
one of Herefords' richest assets which should be nurtured
through more funding rather than less."
- Parent of Youth Project participant
