Jessie’s Fund is a UK charity helping children with additional and complex needs to communicate and express themselves 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. See short video clips here.

“So why Jessie’s Fund? …

What I love about music is we don’t know what it is, how it works, and it doesn’t matter.

It’s all about totally personal response, it helps us find out who we are, and we all deserve that, however many days we’re given.”

“Music can reach parts untouched by anything else. That is never so clear as when making music with children who cannot communicate in any other way. Listening to and making music is their voice and their creativity. It is a thing which brings them to life and laughter like nothing else. And it is the heart of Jessie’s Fund – a wonderful charity which brings the magic of music to children in the most difficult circumstances.”
