Support our work


Jessie’s Fund is a UK charity helping children with additional and complex needs through the use of music. We work with children in hospices, special schools and in other settings nationwide, giving them access to music-making and to music therapy.

His self-esteem, confidence, ability to communicate, vocalise, make choices, take turns, share and initiate have all improved and his love of musical activities and sense of humour has shone through.’
